Our house got hit by lightning last night.
We were awakened at midnight to a HUGE BANG that sounded like a house fell on our house; Greg had jumped into my arms, and I had yelled "Dad" (!) we went back to sleep thinking that it was just close;
this morning we looked outside to see what damage there was from the big dust storm wind;
and amongst the litter of palm tree scales on the ground, were broken tiles from the corner of the cupola by the front door. The roof in that area is all blackened. So, I think that it was hit.
