I tried watching the video, but had to stop because there was no close-up shot of what may have been a young woman in less than full street dress holding a sign bearing the number "one:" that was a very noisy meeting of Domestic Violence Anonymous.

You should have seen the waitresses out there. Shady Jacks, as it turns out, is a fully legit biker club/bar. It's even got a harley shop attached to it. There were tons of Hells Angels there, and lots of other clubs. All the ladies working in the area were dressed for the occassion ;D
Seriously cool stuff.
As we've had actually quite ridiculous weather lately, with several hours of thunderstorm this evening, I've been sitting watching the realtime data from lightningmaps and noticed sadly that a majority of the strikes isn't getting registered. And that's despite having an active station just a bit to the south of here
I suppose it depends on how the users have built their systems. Types of antenna used, locations etc. Also, some of the strikes are maybe cloud to cloud and therefore in the wrong phase with the antenna (again depending on antenna type).
It does also say in the literature that if the strikes are too close to a station they aren't detected.
Looking at the live data, things are pretty quiet over Europe today/tonight. Last week, the place was just bouncing with strikes, most of central europe was just covered in colour on the live maps.
Hopefully the fine weather forecast for the next couple of days will stir something up!
What blows me away is how far away lightning can be detected. I've seen detectors go off in Alaska for lightning strikes in Louisiana. How is that possible? Is the EM pulse that strong that it can be detected 4 or 5 thousand miles away? And what is the EM pulse measured in? Farads? uWatts? I'm totally clueless on this stuff.
 - Never mind, I re-read your article and realized the answer was right there!
Another question I have is, what is the clock source for triangulation? Is my assumption that it is the master clock on the GPS satellites? I guess these things have pretty high resolution, but also that more detectors results in better triangulation.
Whatever your question it this is the easy[^] answer!
Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead?
Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours!
