Had some bad storms roll though just a bit ago. Heavy rain. Lots of wind and cloud to ground lightning.

 

Lightning struck out neighbors house. Right now, they are waiting to get an electrician over to look at it but, nothing is running. They could smell burning through out the house but, no fire.

Their house is maybe 40 feet from ours.

Right outside my office window. It was damn loud. I had all three dogs under my desk. The cat jumped about 4 feet straight up and took off running.
