Last night’s lightning revealed many secrets about Bay Area infrastructure. First, this photo by @wxmann reveals exactly how Imperial AT-ATs are made:

As long time readers will remember, Sutro is no stranger to lightning, as we saw last year.

However, @SFEricM captured a rather dramatic backdrop last night:

Apparently last night’s storm was enough to allow Sutro to TRAVEL BACK IN TIME, as discovered by @jasonbentley:

Looking through my archives, strangely enough, I am now finding pictures of Sutro in many historical eras! Behold this 1889 Edison-era footage of Sutro:

If you find any evidence of Sutro prior to 1973, please let me know and I’ll insert it here.
