Spartan Stadium was evacuated shortly after the beginning of the second quarter in East Lansing last night due a heavy thunderstorm with frequent lightning activity. Our seats are close to the south end zone and we, along with close to 60,000 other Spartan fans, were drenched in the downpour that preceded the emptying of the stadium.
The game resumed after an hour with the band taking the field late at night for their first halftime show of the fall football season.
The image above was taken about ten minutes before we left the stadium for cover in the hallways underneath the stands. The orange clouds billowed with activity as the storm made its way across the skies.
