The Californians skit on SNL is so spot on, it’s ridiculous.
The last time we were visiting family in Southern California there was a small lightning storm. I’ve never seen so many people enchanted by the sky. We were barbequing in a friend’s back yard and they were oohing and ahhing like it was the 4th of July. Things escalated when the neighbors got out a ladder (metal) and went up to their roof to watch the display.
The fact that my wife’s cousin gave directions to the lightning via freeway directions only makes this post all the more lovely.
