    In San Francisco

    I'm in San Francisco for work this week. Last night I was out bar-hopping with a coworker in the lightning storm, and we got drenched. By drenched, I mean we looked like we just crawled out of a pool by the time we got back to the hotel. Who needs public transportation when you have the option to walk 5 miles or so through the pouring rain with no umbrella?

    In case anyone missed it in news - sometime in the middle of this, lightning struck all four towers of the SF bay bridge, which is unheard of. Here's a 20-second exposure a photographer took from their office.

    I read a article about that! Crazy.
    Down here we are getting similar weather-- absolutely getting dumped with rain. There are also lightning strikes nearby.... hopefully it hasn't started fires.

    You crazy... Hahaha. How many others participated in this tom-foolery? I hope today's weather made up for it. I was up in the City for a work gig myself. Awesome shot by that guy. All within 20 seconds... crazy.

    Well, only two of us from the office were in SF to begin with. But there were hundreds+ of sober/drunk san franciscans out and about, just as dumb and wet as we were.

    Those with umbreallas were still soaked from the waist down.
