Amazing Lightening Storm

As I was blogging the dinosaur dig post I kept hearing thunder outside. I stepped out on my balcony after I finished then quickly went back inside to get my camera. I haven't seen a lightening storm like this in a long time, if ever. I didn't have any hope of getting a still shot so I resorted to recording video. This is looking East off my balcony over the rooftop of the building next door. It doesn't do the powerful storm justice at all. But it gives you a glimpse as to how amazing it is.

All I can say is WOW

I love lightening storms! when we were in nauvoo there was an amazing ligtening storm with a constant twelve strikes of lightening in the sky at once, that is how people get still shots of lightening, they take them in the mid west. . . i always wondered how they did that. I bet you saw the same storm, seeing as you were there at the same time. . . what a funny coincidence.
