Flash, boom, how-ya-doin'

I was reading in bed with Kate about 10 minutes ago (about 10pm) when there was a flash of light and a low rumble outside our window.  We both went outside to investigate.  One by one, so did all of our neighbors.  Up and down the street, doors opened and people came out to see what had happened. 

Nobody could figure it out.  It wasn’t lightning.  My guess is a car accident on a nearby street may have hit a power pole.  One of our neighbors suggested a circuit breaker in the nearby power station.  Whatever it was, it was cool to see all of our neighbors (and even meet a new one) and have a brief little neighborhood meeting late at night in the middle of our street.
