Lightning Strikes Berkeley Tree

If you are wondering why I am writing about this article or if you are wondering about my being slow to update today’s wildflower reports, they are related. There was a lightning strike about two blocks from me. It was one of the few times I saw lightening and heard thunder at the same time. I thought it might have hit the nearby school. It didn’t, it hit a redwood tree just over two blocks away. Several houses had windows broke from flying pieces of the tree. No one was hurt. The only damage we had was that Comcast internet was down for about seven hours.  Read story and see photos at: Lightning strikes Berkeley tree, sends wood chunks flying | Berkeleyside.
