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.
