Now THAT Was A Storm!!

Everyone has been talking about it this morning at work. I am assuming that most people who live inside the beltway were awoken this morning around 4AM by that HUGE thunderstorm. That thing was amazing. Of course, I guess it helps that I live less than a mile from the world's largest lightning rod* (also known as the Air Force Memorial).

It's been a really long time since I've seen a storm like that. Except for the getting woken up in the middle of the night part, it was really cool! Ship's cat (Commander Salamander) freaked out a bit, but Smelly seemed totally unfazed by it.

*This is has not been verified by the Guinness Book of World Records. It's actually just an excuse for me to make fun of a national monument.

Cool?!? I got NO sleep, my living room is now soaked because I left the window open, and I was late to work this morning.

That storm also scared the crap out of me when a lightning bold struck almost at my window. Grrr.

Yeah, but (property damage aside) you have to admit that it was pretty bad ass, right?!
