Didn't notice anything tonight. I'm in the Broadway and Clark area.

Power was out early this morning for a few(random?) businesses though. The screens and the hot holding stations were out at Timmy ho's. No breakfast items Van Whole had no power as well.

I think a bunch of people on facebook saw the sky light up white like lightning. Then heard fire trucks, assuming something lit up at the power station behind KFC.

Looks like it hit a pretty big area. I saw that huge flash and power went off and on, but everything stayed on luckily.

I thought someone was doing a grow up again or something.

Yea only one at my house as well, although it was the one that the modem is plugged into so everyone in the house knew something had happened, lol.

Had a power surge last night so today I go on my treadmill and run for 30 mins, get off and I'm cooling down when I hear a big bang, i'm like wtf so I go to power on my treadmill, nothing. So I look down at the power bar and this is what i see;



That's why you need a really good surge protector or else you risk damage, thankfully my treadmill is fine.
