I MISSED THE WHOLE THING!!!

The talk of the town province this morning is all about the huge thunderstorm last night.

Went on for 4 hours. Power is out. Trees are down. >50,000 customers lost their power over night in Nova Scotia.

Apparently the rain came down in sheets, then hard as hail, and there was sheet lightning, and chain lighting, and bolts of lightning.

But I didn’t hear a thing.

I was sleepin’ like a dead fish.

The web cam took 125 pictures over night. They all look like it was daylight out – so every time there was a good flash of lightning, it took a picture. Here are a selection of them (notice the time in the corner of the photos). You can actually see a lightning bolt in the first one:
