Default Thunder and lightning 4 a.m.

All over now, but

Spirit Mountain, directly south of my place, took most of the hits. Amazingly enough, I have not lost power. So, how many of you would get up to watch the storm?

.....Could this mean I might be taking a trip to Oregon? I like Oregon this time of year.

Any new fires on Spirit?

Storm? We didn't get any storm up here, just a light spritzing.
