We were driving through the city last night during a heavy lightning/rain storm. We started out in the northeast heights. There were some pretty close strikes near us as we fueled up and drove. The closest struck a nearby power line and we saw a green flash of light. Sparks flew and a nearby neighborhood lost their power. Of course, by the time we got all the way back home to our house on the edge of the desert, not a drop had fallen…although it did later a bit.
