Spectacular lightning show last Friday (the 13th), and very unusual for this part of Vancouver Island. I heard the first rumblings of thunder at 5:30 a.m. during breakfast, then nothing … except for that eerie closeness in the air that signals something is going to happen. And it did, several hours later, right in the middle of our watching The Inside Man on DVD. Well, forget that. We went onto our balcony and watched the sky show instead. I was hoping that lightning would strike the Parliament Buildings and do some illuminating of certain minds.
