Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

Lightning flashes over Halifax, as 2 people play Pokemon Go on their smartphones, along the waterfront in Dartmouth, NS July 23, 2016. I think there were as many people playing the the then popular game on their phones as there were taking in the light show over the skyline that evening.
