The Mendonoma Coast was treated to a lightning and thunder storm that lasted more than three hours. It was impossible to sleep while the bright flashes filled our bedroom. Several booms made the entire house shake.
Nancy Padgett had more than a little noise. A tree near her home on The Sea Ranch was hit by lightning.
The Sea Ranch fire department put the fire out before it spread. Below is what the tree looked like in the light of day. As Nancy said, poor tree.
Thanks to Nancy for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
