That Bolt. Had wondered where it struck ground. I was on Highland between Central and Lowell, and saw this amazing current // to the ground branching off. I'd never seen anything like that before - it was a pink / peach color. Glad that the folks are okay. Hoping that there's minimal damage.

Living near some woods, I have learned to listen for an unmistakable explody BANG exploding noise when the bolts hit something - like a tree, like my neighbor's house, etc.

We have gone into the woods to find trees burning from the inside.

I am partly deaf, so have difficulty sometimes remarking sound positions (rely on vision and vibration). I do know, though, that a spectacular something was running // to the ground and branching off. I've never seen that color before, though, in lightning.

This is the second house within sight of me that has been struck by lightning (and caught fire) in the 20 years I've lived in this house.
