This Is What They Mean When They Talk about a “Line” of Thunderstorms

Judging from the multiple alerts coming from the Weather Channel app on my BlackBerry, it looks like this evening will be a repeat of last night, when my area was under a severe thunderstorm warning until 11:00 p.m. and the sky over my house was lit up like a laser show. Earlier in the evening, while filling up my car at the bargain basement price of $3.699/gal, I had seen a report on Gas Station TV about lightning strikes at Toronto’s CN Tower during severe storms there. If you build a great big lightning rod sticking high into the air, you have to expect things like that.
