"Flash" back to August 26th
Jettie posted some video of a storm that rolled through in August. During that same storm I was taking photos and video also. I took the video above and when the lightning struck I realized that I was standing in a lightning storm holding on to an aluminum tripod. Notice how close the lightning is. The sound on the camera is pretty muted because it was all wind noise and thunder.
After this lightning strike I was down on my knees with all the hair on my neck standing up.
I took the tripod inside and took photos from the shelter of our house's eves.
I posted on this in August, with many photos and described this strike. But I thought the video might be enjoyed.
