It was a dark and stormy night...

The second really big lightning storm of the summer passed through the Lake area just now. At the height of the storm we were seeing more or less non-stop flashes for a 10 to 15 minute period.

Afterward, looking at the weather radar, we see that the most severe part of a significant group of cells passed right over my location. Lots of red radar returns. Very cool.

It was made even more surreal by the fact that as it was happening I was also watching the 8th and 9th innings of the Redsox game where the sox gave up a 7-1 lead, then struggled to retake it in extra innings.
