My Phillip 66 bear is looking at me strangely and Im getting the willies. I think he just moved.

And this thunder and lightening is freaking me out. it just cracked right overhead like a gigantic pan smashing a building. Ok, the bear totally moved.

Lightning and being in a really high building must be strange... I wonder what it's like on the high floors of some skyscraper. (Do people actually live there or are there just offices in 'em?)

just offices, for the most part. some towers are apts, but then all the rooms are apts.

kinda scary in midtown or downtown late night: think of all that vertical space and noone haunting except the cleaning people and a few unfortunate analysts.

Yeah, but the thunderstorms should be awesome from one of the top floors... If the floor is not up in the clouds itself that is.

Lightning is scary... just across the street from me a tree got hit by a lightning bolt earlier and knocked the whole top of the tree off... it's still lying all over their carport, a big mess of branches and such. I feel kinda bad for them, but mostly I was just glad it wasn't one of the trees in my yard. ;-)

rain, storms, brilliance and stupidity....
I love storms... Even the ones that tend to last too long and cause flooding (floods are only cool when they happen far away...)
I have found that storms are like nature's "sweeps week" All exciting, but albeit predictable. Still you can't not watch...
I have watched storms all my life... I have found that the brilliance of lightening is simply one of nature's not awe inspiring gifts. Nothing man made has ever come close to the power and grandure of lightening... But then I hear stories of gradure of another kind--grand stupidity.
Appearantly, there was this husband and wife couple who also enjoyed a good storm. I'm not sure where in the country they were, but any where is somewhere that should understand the what 1000KW of pure electrical energy unleashed could do.
But not this couple.
Forcing their 2 kids to watch from the safety of the window this couple grabbed a couple of metal lawn chairs and picked a ripe spot under a large tree in their back yard. Within minutes, the tree was struck by lightening and the subsequent eletrical dischrage fried the couple--much to the dismay of their onlooking children.

Sometimes, I think that Darwin may have off a bit in his theory about which way evolution goes....

The storm, of course, is entirely Lisa's fault. She's the one who wrote about how amazing the storms were that she saw in Chicago. New York, of course, simply wasn't going to be upstaged by Chicago!

wow, I didn't know you had that kind of power, could you write something about some rain in Las Vegas.

Hi Lisa

re:rain in las vegas
not enough to notice, lately. we have had less than 4 inches of rain in the last 18 months.
