We had the most wicked lightning storm roll through here last night. I would have loved to watch the show, huge lightning and torrential rain, but I had a very scared puppy on my hands. He is usually not snuggly at all, and never gets on the furniture, (we're fairly he was abused before he found us) but last night he cuddled with me on the couch for hours.

Heard on the radio this morning that a guy was hit by lightning just outside the restaurant where I went for din last night, he's in critical condition and they say he's only alive because some kid was there to give him CPR. The Springsteen concert went really unplugged for a while too, they and my office lost power for a little bit.

Only downside to the evening was that the power was so wonky I didn't want to surf. Surges and brief outages, damn annoying everytime I had to reset the router.

EDIT: That was quite the storm! The guy that was hit is still in critical condition. FYI - 1 meter= 39.37 inches!! Link to local paper
