Main Question or Discussion Point

The monsoon is going nuts tonight. I am getting pounded by lightning strikes. At least one or two a minute, and they are close and loud. It's rattling the windows. I have a question, why does thunder go on for so long? I can hear it continuously for a good 10-15 seconds. I thought maybe it was just because of echos, but then I noticed that is starts quiet then booms then quiets. Echos can't get louder than the original sound can they?

Sorry it was my fault. I can't go into details, but rest assured I'm making amends to the Big Guy.

Okay, I thought there was a lot of lightning the other night. Tonight is the most lightning EVER!! It is all cloud to cloud but there are AT LEAST 100 strikes per minute. It looks like a strobe light. It looks like the second coming. It is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. There might be 200 strikes a minute. It looks like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie walking into a paparrazi convention.

What are you waiting for? If you are an engineer apply at a company in Arizona. It is a great place to be if you don't mind working for the military.

I'm in Tucson. You have a big one coming your way, so keep your head down (or up!). There are 60 mph winds in Benson.

Must be fun!

I was listening to song about sky crying other day:

"Everytime the rain comes down
Close my eyes and listen
I can hear the lonesome sound
Of the sky as it cries "

9135 strikes and my tv just died. I don't have cable, but I get the digital channels with my rabbit ears. I sure hope all the digital channels are sent from the same antenna and it just got stuck by lightning because I can't get a signal on any channel. Hope i didn't just fry my brand new hdtv.

Now I'm getting 5-1 and 5-2. they must be on a different antenna. I've lost 3-1,8-1,8-2,8-3,8-4,10-1,12-1,12-2,15-1,15-2, 45-1,45-2,51-1,51-2,51-3,51-4,61-1.
I know it's nothing compared to satellite or cable, but this free digital you get with rabbit ears are pretty cool.
