A little before 8:00 on February 26th the sky started lighting up over Whidbey. After I parsed out all the images there were some unique shots. In particular a double ground to cloud strike in the same image.
Ground to cloud strikes are fairly rare for us. The other unique event is that the tower that was struck in the image above was struck twice. (See Below) I guess you could call these captures a double double....
There were several strikes. Below is a slide show from all my cams.
All this action caught the attention of a couple of my favorite bloggers.... They provide much more detail and science about this event.
