  • The loud crashing of lightning hitting a tree, set off car alarms and woke up the neighborhood at 720 Laguna St at 11:20 PM Sunday night. Thankfully the SB Fire dept put it out before it damaged cars or apartments.

  • That wasn’t just the neighbors rolling out their trash cans to the curb! Proper lightning, thunder and rain in the San Marcos/Cathedral Oaks area. About 11:45 pm.

Lightning Strikes Tree on Laguna Street

I saw that flash last night. I once encountered a tree struck by lightning in the Trinity Alps Wilderness. A strip of bark was peeled from top to bottom in a spriral fashion. It looked like a barber pole in the middle of the wilderness. It was a almost remarkable sight.

At 11:21 p. m. I witnessed a massive flash of lightning and counted, waiting for the thunder. Buh-buh-buh-BOOM BOOM BOOMEDY-BOOM-BOOM-BOOM. The house shook. Yikes. And my count calculated that the lightning was less than a mile away. Hah. It was this strike. Whoo-ee. Sad we lost a tree.
