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.
