At least according to every Facebook and Twitter newsfeed I happened to lay eyes on last night. Everyone had something to say about the thunder, either regarding how awesome or terrifying it was, but the most striking sentiment came from a friend’s FB post:
It made me realize that in the 6 or 7 years I’ve lived in SF myself as well, I can’t exactly remember experiencing a thunderstorm either. I guess they just don’t happen here ever? I could have sworn that they were commonplace when living in Berkeley before that, but perhaps that’s an invented memory too. At the very least, nature’s sonic performance last night finally gave all the East Coasters and Midwesterners something to be smug about!
