Hello as you can see im Azador.My punctuation is terrible so please excuse me(,?)my grammar is worse(but i still love her).Ive been reading through
ats for a couple of months now and decided to join after seeing the weirdest lightning storm ive ever witnessed.I never use smileys on anything so im
going to get this out of my system now.
Thanks for the welcome fullas.The storm was strange because i woke up hearing strange noises which sounded like people running past my window so i
stuck my head out the window and swore my head off because i thought there were people out there(i think it might have been dogs).But there was
nothing out there but a frog(?)making strange noises.Thats when i noticed the lightning flashes every few seconds the sky would flash from a small
cloud sitting beside the mountain which is about 10km away.It wasnt raining it was still really warm(we are in the middle of summer)there was no
thunder at all no wind it was kind of spooky.I watched this for about two hours and even went for a walk to a local school to get closer and i swear i
saw a twinkle in the sky at one point which really freaked me out.After i went home i kept a knife beside my bed like it was going to do any good but
i was quite unnerved.The next day i rung the local newspaper to see if anyone had said anything but they knew nothing of it however my boss said she
heard someone on the radio sa y something about the lightning.Ive looked on the net but the closest i could find was a summer storm which said in
really hot weather you can get lightning without rain or wind but it didnt say anything about it being hours long and silent.
Thanks for the link.Im not sure if it was that but ill keep reading.The mountain is dormant but its got a cool classical volcanoe shape.Theres alot of
local tales and legends about it.There is an active(im pretty sure its classed as active)mountain about 35-45km away which is also a big player in
local folklore.When i can i will u2u the location if you like
The location would be helpful yes, I think you need another 15 posts to send U2U's. It's fair enough if you don't want to give away your location
more publicly, although just the name of either or both volcanoes would do.
This is quite interesting, reminds me of this phenomenon from Popocatepetl:
