Lightning

The weather has been very hot recently.  On Tuesday it was 108 degrees.  For Santa Barbara, this is not normal.  Today it seemed to cool off a bit.  It was still a warm and sweaty day, but not unbearably so.  While coming back from class tonight, I saw flashes in the sky.  At first I was sure they had to be man-made lights, but as I approached home I realized this was not so.  I went outside, and saw that there was definitely lightning out over the ocean.  The lightning is frequent, at least a few flashes each minute.  It's a clear night, so this is seems a bit weird.  And we haven't had rain in a long time.  But I suppose a storm is moving in. 

That picture is what tonight probably looks like from Shoreline Park.
