Sounded like a bomb went off in deep cove.  Where did that lightning hit?

I don't deny that, although the lightning was a suprise. Must have been the chili.

Wife said it was so loud and the lightning flash so bright that she screamed. The flash and thunder were almost together so if you go by that theory it must have been pretty close (Burke Mtn area)

I was playing hockey, didn't even know it happened.

Yeah we used to get major lightning in Germany, I always loved the big lightning storms. We didn't get any up in Campbell River, last winter we actually had a snow squall with an epic Lighting show that was highly awesome and unusual.

As did I.

That said, man-made climate-change combined with these storms have left me scared for my life.

Quick, let's cut down all the trees and replace them with ones who go up in smoke the fastest.  How else will we get profits into foreign CEO's coffers?

We just moved to Kamloops into our dream house back in April. A few weeks in we were blessed with an amazing lightning storm we watched from our deck. Then lightning struck across the street and we had to evacuate because of a fire, so that was fun.
