Ever since I was a kid, I have been fascinated by thunderstorms. They are just too cool for words.
My wife has grown weary of my incessant whining about how wimpy our summer has been in terms of thunderstorms. Well, we finally got one tonight that scratched my itch in a big way. My three-year-old son and I went out on our balcony to enjoy the storm together, and he was as enthralled as I was — it must be in the genes.
In fact, the storm was so loud that I got my video camera out to record it. Here are some highlights:
The video doesn’t really do justice to the sheer volume of this storm. I was overwhelmed at times. Watch at around 2:32 for a lightning strike nearby that makes my camera wig out, and around 3:00 you can see some nasty looking green lightning.
