Storm KOs power, causes light show

The most productive snowstorm to hit North Idaho since 2009 wiped out power to thousands Monday night. And as the storm was dumping 12.8 inches of snow in Kootenai County, some residents observed spectacular yet eerie flashes of light. “It was so bizarre. I kind of just saw something out of the corner of my eye,” said Jimmy McAndrew, who went straight to Facebook to ask his friends and family if they had witnessed it as well. “Anyone else catch that? Strange super-bright lights (not lightning) and electricity going off and on. I feel like maybe the start of a sci-fi movie is going down in our hood,” McAndrew posted on the social media platform. “It was very extraterrestrial-ish.” Facebook friends from Hayden to Post Falls reported similar sightings of red and green lights/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Anyone besides Jimmy-MAC see the storm-caused light show in the sky last night?
