With summer looming ever-larger in the windshield, One World Trade Center caught an early dose of the season's favorite activity -- lightning -- on May 23, 2014.
Here, a bolt tags the antenna on top of the Lower Manhattan behemoth as an electrical storm moves over New York.
A fishing boat is faintly visible in the Hudson River as a bolt of lightning hits the ground next to One World Trade Center.
The electrical show gives the buildings a brief respite, as it shoots across the sky.
One bolt wasn't enough, apparently. This time two jolts of lightning zero in on the World Trade Center antenna.
Skylines across the country are now on notice: Summer's on the way and it will be packing a wallop.
