Fantastic Lightning! Power from the heavens above. -- abby
I had some time tonight to look over this picture, as far as the location of lightning hitting the hills. The bolt up front and to our left I'm 90 percent sure it hit the power line which is at this point. To verify I looked at a topographic map and sure enough it's there. The other two strikes have power lines as well but I'm only about 80 percent sure here. I called the power company and they claim that the power lines get hit a lot. -- johnstownwildfire
