from unexpected places - venezuela

For 140 to 160 nights out of the year, for 10 hours at a time, the sky above
where the Catatumbo River flows into Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela the
river is pierced by almost constant lightning, producing as many as 280
strikes per hour.  Known as the "Relampago del Catatumbo," this lightning
storm has been raging, on and off, for as long a people can remember.

Sounds like the location for a great story.
