A massive storm bringing over 173,000 lightning strikes in under 24 hours battered southern Australia.
I did the math: 24 hr * 60 min = 1440 minutes
173,000 strikes / 1440 = 120 strikes per minute (for 24 hours!!!).
I’m guessing this is probably a world record (soon to be broken). A bit more news on this lightning story here.
An interesting interview with James Balog, photographer on the new film, “Chasing Ice”. I feel exactly like he says at the interview — the future for my kids looks absolutely terrifying.
