The initial rate of recovery of the field is generally such that if it had remained
uniform the whole field destroyed by the discharge would have been regenerated

earth in showers and thunderstorms Lightning. From the sudden changes which
are produced in the electric field at the surface of the earth by the passage of
lightning discharges at known distances, we may deduce the electric moments of

The vertical electric force at the ground due to a thunder-cloud does not generally
much exceed the sudden change which occurs when a lightning discharge
passes; very frequently each flash suddenly reverses the sign of the potential
gradient, which again within a few seconds recovers its original sign. After each
discharge the electric field tends to return to the value which it had before the
discharge, the curve of recovery of the field frequently approaching the
exponential form.

This was one of the very moments they had trained so long for. Every soldier
within Festung was ready within seconds of hearing the loud bellows from deep
within the woods. The chiefs had their ants assembled and ready for the fight. As
the oncoming enemy pushed the outer squads back towards the fortress, they
knew that there would be an entire army of backup waiting for them at the inner
perimeter. Lightning and his squad fought as long and hard as they could. Stormy
was ...

Within seconds we were third in line and Amaji was right in front of us on a raised
platform. The first thing I saw was her wide smile and sparkling eyes, in an
ageless face. She was beaming love straight out to the next man in line. He
stepped up onto the platform to face her and then knelt down in front of her lap.
She reached out and gathered that man into her bosom and then held him there
for a few moments, wrapped in the embrace of a comforting mother. My heart
melted. This was ...

The thunder crashed and rolled above me, followed moments later by fierce jabs
of lightning that seemed to want to strike me down. I raced forwards as a crack of
lightning jabbed across the field, bathing the barn and the area around it in a
strange, vibrant light. I watched with horror as the lightning struck the tall oak tree
alongside the barn, and split it almost cleanly in two. For a few seconds the tree
seemed to hover, like a feather suspended in air. Then it groaned and the larger
of the ...

At the moment, I thought her to be in her mid-twenties. Originally, from New Iberia
, Louisiana, Mayor Claude Wadsworth was raised from Cajun stock—if not by
surname, then by blood. I'd bet on the latter. Christmas morning I awoke with a
pounding headache, but it wasn't the headache that awoke me. Heart stopping
lightning, accompanied by crashing thunder jolted me awake. The skies finally
opened within seconds of the lightning. A small lake quickly began to pool
outside my ...

The odds of such a behavior change happening at those exact moments would

For just a moment, the little bit of water vapor still around crystallized into very dry
snow, but then it was gone. “Launching.” And just like that, I was weightless. I
heard a moan from back in the cabin. The forward port arched over my head, so I
looked up and saw the rectangular opening of the launch bay rapidly shrinking
away from us. It looked like a door in an infinite black wall. That would be the
outer surface of the ship. But that view lasted only about five seconds, and the
ship rotated ...

Within seconds the sky was torn apart by massive bolts of lightning, slender
claws reaching down from the heavens at 130,000 miles an hour to snatch the
Earth's soul. ... stepped forward to block the Dark Prince and paid for it by having
his heart ripped out and eaten; the other drew his weapon, a measly .03 amp
taser, and moments later found himself lying in a pool of his own blood, his body
convulsing as he blinked his last bits of consciousness away staring at his
severed limbs.
