The Lightning Always Strikes Twice

We’ve talked before about being fans of weird weather phenomena, but here’s a good one. On Tuesday night in Seattle, lightning struck THRICE. Check out the video:

You can read all about what happened on KOMO TV’s Weather Blog, which states that “the Needle is well prepared for [lightning], as it is equipped with 24 lighting rods around the top, not counting the tip of the Needle itself. Those rods safely channel the energy into the ground and there’s really no danger to being on the Needle during a thunderstorm.”

As a time-to-time Seattle tourist, all I can say is WHEW. And maybe a little WOW.
