Wow, that was a heck of a wind and lightning storm tonight. Suddenly out of nowhere the wind picked up to an intensity that I've never seen since living in this apartment. It blew one of my bikes over, flung things around the apartment, slammed doors, etc. I could barely even get into the bike room to close the window because the wind was so strong.
Then the lightning started. I decided to watch the show from my balcony, while trying to take some lightning photos. I had never taken any lightning photos before, but tonight I managed to capture three strikes.
There was surprisingly little rain with this storm, and it blew by rather quickly. But that sure was fun while it lasted. Here are my photos of the lightning strikes.
