|An absolutely vicious thunderstorm nearly derailed the show today, rolling in without warning at about 3:30. The rain came in horizontally as a wall of mist and water, forcing rapid deployment of the tarp system always on hand at these semi-outdoor events, to save the mixing consoles and other gear from certain doom. Then the lightning struck and struck hard!! A series of deafening booms immediately followed a set of massive lightning bolts that struck right on the grounds of the Polaris. Power was intentionally cut to the stage area, to ensure that any possible strike didnt travel to the sensitive equipment and fry out the gear needed to do the show. Meanwhile the band and crew huddled at the fringes of the stage in a mixture of fascination and concern. fortunately, the storm wasnt very long lasting. After about 30 minutes of delay, the sun broke thru and the storm was said to be moving East rapidly. Soundcheck resumed and the show was back on track.
