The weather was tempertuous on Friday. The day began with sunny skies and temperatures that soared into the 90's. But by lunchtime, thunderstorms moved in. A lightning bolt from the quickly moving storm struck a primary electrical line which snapped and burst into flames at about 1:35 pm. The picture of the line in flames was taken in front of 9 Stratton Road. The Scarsdale Fire Department and Police Departments stood by until Con Edison arrived.
