Lightning just struck the high power lines in front of my house. We’re sitting here listening to the rain and watching the storm coverage on tv when there’s a bright flash … loud thunder … loud humming and a shower of sparks down onto the median and the road.
From the little I can see out the front windows it doesn’t look like a line is down but they’re swinging in the wind pretty crazily.
I think one benefit of having those tall steel high power line towers in front of the house is that it’s VERY unlikely lightning will ever strike the house.
The sparks were kind of pretty.
