Storm chasing in the front yard

There was a huge storm rolling through the valley this afternoon. I never saw any precip here, but I heard there was hail not too far away. I stood outside and shot about a hundred shots like these...


...trying really hard to get lucky and capture a lightning shot. After a while I decided I was pressing my luck. The mailbox near where I was standing was struck by lightning several years ago.
That last one looks like God has his arms crossed...

Can you see it?

YES, I can! They are all very "Harry Potterish" looking. Sorry you didn't catch any lightning.

Yes, I can see also. I saw one last Sunday from the airplane climbing to altitude that looked like the Roadrunner with his legs out front coming to a screaching halt!

Great shots, "God's Arms" and all. I am not "Sorry you didn't catch any lightning." It would have been nice had you shot a pic or two of some, though.

(English is such a fun language. Yeh, Kenju, I know what you meant; you said it well. But deliberately taking it with another meaning was a very small tickle to my, uhm, humerus... )

How utterly cool.
