LOOK: Lighting postpones Dodgers vs. Giants Monday night

By Michael Dixon

The beginning of Monday’s game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants has been delayed because of something uncommon in San Francisco — heavy lightning.

This isn’t something that either team is used to.

Lightning in California is fairly rare, especially in its big population centers. In San Francisco, a city that’s experienced record highs in late August and early September, rain and lightning is even more unexpected.

As long as you’re in a safe, covered area, the lightning is actually rather pretty to look at. If you’re not in a safe, covered area, find one as soon as possible.
