Lightning has always fascinated me. Isn't it just a super huge static discharge? Whatever it is, it is pretty cool looking and can be deadly. With the naked eye, most lightning strikes just looks like an instant bolt with no motion or direction. Sometimes you can see some motion and direction in some cloud to cloud lightning, but nothing like these guys captured with their ridiculously expensive super slow motion camera that can capture over 100,000 frames per second. Just for reference, video you watch on TV is usually 30 frames per second.
Spring (if it ever gets here) usually brings thunderstorms to the area. Last year, I think we had to get through second and third winter before spring finally came. Let's hope we don't have to wait as long this year.
