IRQ12: Um why are they still playing ball in an open stadium with visible lightning in the area?

We're Californians. We have no idea how lightning works.

There's nothing more frustrating than photographing lightning. Honestly, you take about 100+ pictures of failed attempts of just darkness and the occasional bit of light. But, the one photo (or two-three if you're lucky) that actually gets lightning is so good, and it makes all the effort worth it.

Epic lightning storm, or as we say in Atlanta: Every day between March 31 and October 31.

May seem not-news, but cloud-to-ground lightning is pretty consequential in an area where the last rain was four months ago.

Also, 11,000+ lightning strikes in the region last night.  Luckily, the majority of them in an odd line extending 100 mi offshore Half Moon Bay, not over land.  Glad I wasn't flying out there last night.
