There was some intense lightning in our area on Tuesday night.

In the above video, which lasts just six seconds, there is dash cam footage of some lightning and those six seconds are enough proof that the outdoors is no place you want to be when there is lightning.

I suggest clicking the settings wheel on the video and playing it at .25 speed to get the full effect.

If the video, even slowed down, still seems unconvincing, let's take a closer look at what happened in that very short time frame via the below photo gallery of stills taken from the video.

I feel bad for whoever was standing right beneath that lightning in the last picture. Nature is mean, scary, and non discriminatory.
