FINALLY. I've been trying to upload this stupid video onto YouTube for like two days.
Just in case you didn't believe me about the lightning, this is a small snippet of what it was like for at least 2-3 hours straight on Monday night. Video taken from my hotel room on the 19th storey. All I wonder is how crazy it would have been to see this from the Signature Lounge instead.
And, those sounds are not giant dumpsters being rolled around, it really was grand crashes of thunder. The first half of the vid is more exciting--you don't need to watch the whole thing.
PS. Don't make fun of my dorky exclamations >_< . Lightning is not something we get a lot of here in California. So lay off!
