    I've never seen, rather heard that happen before.

    I'm actually in Ithaca, NY right now (Cornell University to be specific).

    To answer your question, not often in both locations.

    I have seen bikes do that to a row of cars. Too funny.

    I've seen that happen before. That's why when I buy car, I don't buy one with car alarm that goes off from vibration. It's better to have car alarm that goes off only when broken into.

    Living in Florida, you get used to seeing Lighting and Thunder. I remeber a thunder blast so loud that it shook my entire room greatly.

    My friend had a car alarm that was so sensitive, when the rain dropped at certain points, his alarm would give the beep warning

    It's nuts here in Orlando. I swear, it's been T-storming for about 2 months now [​IMG] Maybe a day or two of brightness, but otherwise very shitty.

    Of course, I am used to the crappy weather here in Florida [​IMG] Sunshine State?! pah!

    Pretty much sums it up. I've seen/heard lightning blasts so intense they shook a pane of glass so hard I thought it was going to shatter.

    I live above a cafe, and every morning, when the delivery trucks would turn on their trucks to leave, my alarm would go off. Annoying to no end.

    A bolt of lighting hit a tree next to a neighbor's house a few years ago; the thunder clap stood me up upright from a deep sleep.

    I was at the Boeing Air Museum in Seattte a few years ago. We were just leaving when a couple F-18's from the Carl Vincent took off from the runway next to the parking lot. Damned loud! The jet blast must have set off twenty car alarms.

    Where I work is right next to McConnel Air Force Base. They used to station B-1 bombers there. If you thought F-18's were noisy. [​IMG] Thankfully they moved them, now we just have to put up with 747's.
