How crazy was THAT? Up in Bellingham, man there was a solid hour of nonstop lightning, a lot of it very very close. Then the power goes out. What a night. I've lived in different places in the country over the years and I can't say I've seen a thunderstorm quite like this one.

It wasn't too bad compared to what I saw growing up in Arkansas but it did scare our girls. Our pig normally sleeps right outside our window but when I went to check on her, she wasn't there. Instead, she was huddled in the shed with our horses who were protecting her.

Edit: for reference, we live out in Woods Creek near Monroe.

How y'all doing with this one? Some nice lightning. Fast-moving, though. Swept through south Seattle really swiftly. Nice to have some proper rain again, at least.

Yeah, we got spoiled by the last one so last night seemed a little lackluster, but if they had happened in the other order I think we'd have been more excited with the relatively minor version
