A violent lightning and thunder storm, dumping a torrential downpour, ripped through NYC in the late afternoon of 9/16/10. The whole thing was over in a matter of minutes, and then calm resumed.

The Empire State Building’s lightning rod got put to good use during this lightning / thunder storm — it got zapped by a direct hit! How neat is that?

And no, the ESB isn’t leaning.  That was a tripod malfunction that couldn’t be adjusted.  Oops!
