We had a good little storm last night. Earlier I had noticed some lightning to the northeast, mostly cloud to cloud, fun to watch, it brought out the shapes.

It really hit about an hour after I went to bed. The brass bells on my veranda started ringing, the lightning was right on top of me, the wind got pretty furious, moaning through everybody’s open, louvered windows and all up and down the halls and stairwells, some of the sounds were quite remarkable, like the whole building was giant organ pipes.

I was kind of enjoying it all, then I was sure that I smelled smoke, boy did my nose open, my ears shot up. The smell was real, but I finally decided that it was ozone, I remember the smell from the subway, and model trains.
