It's as if some kind of wizardry is going on!!

I mean,  that the three tallest objects in a small area, in a thunderstorm, could possibly be struck at the same time...

Does it float? Burn it.

/farking awesome vid, and shots.
//also a weather porn wanker

Three lightning strikes?  Three lightning strikes in one?  It's the strike that it wants to be and the one that it has become?

Wait.. I saw this in a movie I think. It was signaling the end of times, or time travel, or uh, mutants controling the weather, or something.

Derechos are fun storms to watch if you aren't in 'em. I lived in the DC suburbs during the 2012 one. Took 3 days to get power back in a heatwave. This one went a lot smoother.

Three strikes fits perfectly with the ongoing theme of MLB hitters in that city.

This.... THIS is what happens when you allow the democrat party to run a city!
