Lightning on the World’s Tallest Scraper!!

This is not something we would normally be concerned with when you have the weight of the world’s tallest tower to manage… but WOW lightning loads on this must have been crazy! The bottom photos make it look like the lightning is literally stretching across the city to just touch this building! What’s really unbelievable is that in most of these photos you’re only seeing half the building–the vantage point must have been from high on the balcony of another building.

This is the Burj Dubai standing at just over 1/2 of a mile… 818 Meters!!
