Yeah, what Sean said. We finally got it out here in the west end of the San Fernando Valley last night.
I woke up at 2:00 AM to the sound of multiple lightning strikes and couldn’t go to bed for another hour or so. There was one lightning strike that was so cracklingly close, less than a mile away in fact, and so loud, that it really did sound like a large explosion had gone off right outside my window.
At least one car alarm went off as a result, but the dogs in the neighborhood were silent. Very unusual. I guess they were really spooked.
