The thunder woke me at 1:45 AM...so I got up and tried my hand at lightning photography.

Hi Jim! That's looking towards Olive Ave. The really bright spot is the lights from the Sierra Minit Mart on the corner of Olive and Newcomb.
This was shot just outside my back fence.

Ahhhh, ok. Seeing the foothill with the the antennas in the background, I figured it was from the west side of town. bye the way, being a native Portervillian myself, does that hill actually have a name? I used to climb that when I was a kid.
