As storm clouds rolled in today amid disgustingly oppressive humidity, I opened the balcony door at work to allow some fresh, cool air into the building.
A bolt of lightening soon startled me as it struck this hillside, igniting a blaze at a mobile home near the Observer-Reporter newspaper in Washington, Pa.
We sent a reporter and photographer. I left for an unrelated meeting. No one apparently was hurt, but the heavy rain flooded roads, backed up traffic and made it difficult for fire crews to reach the scene.
