We all were treated to an hour long demonstration of firepower from the sky Saturday night. Starting at 8:30pm the lightening and thunder were constant and the rain intermittent.

Residents with open views, both west and east, got to watch the lightening strikes - some 1250 of them. 

When you have 1250 strikes an hour
you have to double up

Several of our photographers were able to capture shots of the strikes. Thanks to Jan Hansen, Wayne Pridemore, and Cynthia Sheridan.

Power outages were not widespread in the area. A cluster of outages followed 8th NE which had at least two transformers blow. Other outages in the same area went from the freeway to 15th NE. Each outage affected 1 - 8 households. Some will be restored quickly; others have estimated restoration dates up to 11pm Sunday.
