There's so much you can learn, when you're on a pachyderm...

Lightning struck Lucy the Elephant for the second time in five years.

I don't know how well known she is outside the Garden State, but Lucy is a 130-year-old novelty building in Margate, near Atlantic City. She's a bit of a symbol for New Jersey weirdness, as you can probably imagine. The last lightning strike started a fire that destroyed her howdah; fortunately, the owners installed a lightning rod since then. This strike only damaged internal electrical and computer systems.
