Lightning vs. the Space Needle

Image via KOMO

That was some rainstorm last night, for being in Seattle and all. (Personally, part of the reason I moved out of Florida is because lightning is scary, so I’m ok with it hardly ever happening here.) KOMO’s cameras caught a few images of lightning hitting the Space Needle during the observation deck’s operating hours, which probably made for a pretty memorable visit for anyone who was up there. The top of the Space Needle has 25 lightning rods (including the tower), but in this climate they don’t usually get much of a workout.
