Ode to lightning!
I started hearing some thunder so I went outside to roll up my windows on the truck when I saw this bizarre and totally sweet storm cell sweeping across the valley and SO LOW too! I got the camera out and took a few shots before the rain hit HARD. I took 2 video clips. This is the second one.. gosh this is sweet.. watch the beginning a few times you can see the lightning right in front of me..
Download it here --> lightning.avi
Or check it out here from good ole youtube.. (this version is a crappier compressed version.. It looks tons better if you download it.)
I love this stuff!
Check out these pics. This storm was cool.. it was moving FAST.
ok these 2 were taken less than an hour later.. weird..
These are just a bunch of pics from later in the day..
