In May of this year, the NCSU Bell Tower was struck by lightning during an electrical storm. The article at this link describes how a 1,500 pound chunk of granite was knocked down by the lightning and they had to rush to get it fixed prior to graduation this spring.
It's hard to get a good shot of the full Bell Tower while riding in a car, because of all the electrical wires. I've actually been thinking for some time about how next time I'm at the street across from the campus I would photograph the Bell Tower. As it turned out Bill and I drove by there on the way to Lake Johnson last weekend but the electric wires got in the way since I was shooting from the car.
