The sky opened up big time as I was leaving the office this afternoon. Lots of rain really fast and lightning constantly. I turned on to the main road out of the industrial park and a bolt of lightning hit a utility pole about 100 feet in front of me. I drove through the shower of sparks that rained down and the top of the pole instantly let off a ton of yellow-brown smoke.
That was crazy. I haven't seen lightning that close before.
