Apparently, in one of the MOST 2020 things we've seen so far, a lightning bolt seemingly struck the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday (July 22nd).

According to people who were able to see the strike from different angles, it did not actually hit Lady Liberty.  It zapped close enough to make it appear that it hit the statue.

It still kind of feels like a really bad omen, though, doesn't it?  You think we'd be used to it by now, though.

Just being honest, sometimes it feels like we are living through EVERY Syfy original movie, both the science fiction movies and their horror movies, at the same time.  A pandemic, murder hornets, unrest, a lack of toilet paper, a shortage of change...

 

We just need to make the best of it, for now, right?  Stay healthy and take care of each other.

For those who don't know, according to Wikipedia, the Statue of Liberty was a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States.  It was sculpted by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and the framework was designed by Gustave Eiffel (yes, the tower guy).  It was dedicated on October 28, 1886.  It is also known as Liberty Enlightening The World.  Since 1933, it has been maintained and operated by the National Park Service.  Normally, it is possible to tour the statue.  However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been closed to the public since March of 2020.
