Grammarant for Jan. 23

I have my internet back…Lucky you.

Last night’s January thunderstorms provided the perfect lead-in for today’s rant.

Lightening is something you do to your coffee.

Lightning is the bright light you see in the sky just before you hear thunder.

I know it can be confusing, because lightning does indeed create a lightening of the night sky, but still, no ‘e’ when talking about the discharge of atmospheric electricity. Or hockey in Tampa.

I hope you’ve found this post enlightening. (sorry, too much too soon?)
