We had quite a lightning storm last night. I haven’t seen lightning like this in as long as I can remember! So I decided to take a few shots. Take a look!
As my wife and I watched the lighting poor down we wondered exactly how it was made. So I looked it up!
“You need cold air and warm air. When they meet, the warm air goes up. It makes thunderstorm clouds! The cold air has ice crystals. The warm air has water droplets. During the storm, the droplets and crystals bump together and move apart in the air. This rubbing makes static electrical charges in the clouds.” – NASA
I love the clouds in this next photo.
The lightning at times seemed to just crawl across the sky.
And as quick as it arrived it was gone. Power was out for about 3 hours. The wind must have knocked down a power line.
Did you see the lightning last night? Hope you enjoyed the photos! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
