We have very bad lightning tonight. I think it's keeping people snug in their beds, which doesn't bother me, but it's rather annoying popping off all our equipment.
Fingers crossed it doesn't hit the antenna outside my window, come through the wall, run under my station in a giant white/blue ball of light, and come out of the telephone at the station beside me. There have been 3 trips to the ER in the past 2 years.
That's better than the old office they had, long before I started. They were in the dome of a very old building, had to sit on their desks because lightning would crawl across the floor, and they were constantly invaded by bats. I'll take the flying ball of light.
ETA: My boss recently invested in yet another piece of equipment to go in our office that is not wired to handle what we have. It's a weather center. That's all it shows. Idk why we couldn't flip to TWC, check NOAA, and a few other sites as usual, but whatever. So far it has not shown the slightest blip of our last 2 bad storms, and it has community names for my county that were used before the 1920's. I pay no attention to it.
