Sutro Tower strike
The lightning flashes shone through the drapes. The thunder boomed three seconds later. The storm was just above our heads, and our ten-year-old shingled roof didn't feel very solid.
The thunderclaps continued half the night, and we didn't get to sleep till 1 a.m.
Tornados, tsunamis, temblors, and thunderstorms remind us that our controlled, cosseted, civilized existences are an illusion. They can vanish in a flash.
