Lightning Storms and Baseball

image of tail lights driving into lightning stormWe had a serious electrical storm last weekend. I was sitting with a friend enjoying the evening when the sky started to light up.

“Wanna go storm chasing?” I asked.

We zipped through the county roads looking for the best spot. I got set up and the storm was still going – long before the rain came. Long enough for me to catch this shot, above, of a taxi headed back to town, driving right into the storm.

Below are two more strikes. The first one is really blown out. I know it’s a no-no to display your blown out photos, but I post it as a testament to how crazy bright some of the flashes were.
