Lightening Goes Wild --- Day 9/123

Walk: No, Thunderstorms
Distance: 0, Pedal, Yoga



Usually it is difficult to capture the random flickers of lightening in a photo.  But if you had your camera out last night in the Bay Area, you couldn't miss..  From at least 3:30 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. when Ciwt was woken by it and then stood staring out her window transfixed (and nervous because she lives up high), we had a continuous flashing lightening storm.  In her decades out here Ciwt has seen a wide variety of storms but nothing like this other wordly (and not a good one) spectacular havoc.  Even our local professional meteorologists were amazed by the Bay Area-wide, multi-hour severe thunderstorm event with one saying that he can't remember anything so extended or concentrated in his entire 46 years in meteorology.  Ciwt thinks 46 years or more would be an excellent interval before the next one......
