It had been so hot and dry for quite some time. I was so glad that it was finally raining when all of a sudden… BOOM ZAP POW! Straight outta the sky came the lightning followed by rolling THUNDER!
It scared our cats a bit, they stared around all wide eyed and stayed low to the ground. The dogs in the neighborhood on the other hand were going off like car alarms! Poor doggies.

There was one giant bolt that struck right outside our window, but I had stopped recording because of course I had to watch star trek… ahem… but all the same I feel happy about this footage I captured ^_^
