Re: Dennis' Landfall

Well... it is just I have never seen lightning, and another poster here was reiterating the same… which is not to say it can't happen (I have only been through two afterall). Actually, I suppose it would be difficult to locate, as thunder would be most inaudible. I did read once that lightning is observed when a tropical cyclone interacts with
mountainous terrain. I am not sure why that would happen under those conditions, and this is certainly not what is causing Dennis to do it.

Eh, exploding transformers, lightning… it’s all the same.
