We had four hours of big storms Monday night. The sky was constantly lit up with lightning. Today, the Chicago Tribune provided statistics demonstrating the storm's magnitude.
In just four hours:
- 90,000 strikes of lightening across NE Illinois Monday evening.
- 6: the number of months it usually takes to reach 90,000.
- 800 strikes per minute Monday evening.
Below is a picture submitted to the Tribune, but I couldn't find the photographer's name other than cdenamur.
Wow! Too bad I don't have a factory that could print 90,000 "I survived" t-shirts for me! (TL, I think we could create a cool t-shirt!)
