Do you Pray, or Wish Good Vibes? I have an assignment

I read the weather report, 20 percent chance of showers, also thunderstorms.

Locking up the sheep (The coyote was chased out of the pasture today) I felt a little sprinkle.

Then a Fire Department email comes through about seeing lightning. When I replied I hadn't seen any, he sent this:

Yep, we are sitting on the back porch and it is almost like a 4th of July
show at 11PM. Looks like the North is just getting hammered. Something is
going to be burning by morning. Could they see another 2008???
Swing by Plotz hill at first light and holler if you see any smoke!
- 4316

A friend from Santa Rosa can see the lightning and asked how it was out here. (I am 4 miles from the coast.)

I went out and looked West, sure enough, it's quite a show. We had one about two weeks ago. Sonoma Co. had 18 smokes the next day, last count I heard. I've lived here 30+ years and summer rain and lightning is not our thing. Seen some fierce Winter Lightning storms, knocked out power for days. But not this summer stuff.

Thanks,
ADW

3. Thanks, I just got back from watching West. About one a minute,

I have a Mt. to my North, but west is open, and if I go outside and take a walk I can see NW. I went to bed last time about 1AM and in about 15 minutes the lightning came, then the thunder, and foutunatly some rain. It has been muggy, but dry so far. Been real hot the last few days.
