So I’m talking to one of my friends who lives in D.C. and he’s complaining about the rain, the thunder, the lightning, blah blah blah. He’s turned off his computer but I tell him it’s not enough – he has to unplug it to protect it from power surges.
All of a sudden he yells, “What was that?” He’s shaken and says that was the worst clap of thunder he’s ever heard. I’m kind of half-listening because, you know, thunder’s loud. He kept saying he wondered if the city was under attack, the sound “felt” weird.
So we talked a little bit more and then ended the conversation.
I was flipping through channels after I got off and saw this MSNBC headline: “Crane collapse in D.C.” Turns out a huge crane collapsed at the National Cathedral — which is right near my friend’s apartment.
He was right. It was weird.
