Thunder strikes

A thunderstorm, seen from the relative safety of the subway stop in Garching.

Ok, it is really summer now. After some hot days, today southern Germany was hit by massive thunderstorms. Luckily I saw it coming, right after a colloquium talk at the MPI for Physics, so I made it in time to the subway. However, once I got home to Garching, things were really bad: Several inches of water on the streets, rain pouring down, lightning and thunder everywhere. So here I was, trapped in the subway station, waiting for things to get better. Well, at least I tried to take a picture with my mobile phone. Admittedly, it does not look quite as bad as it felt right then and there, but now, dry again, I’m really looking forward to summer.
