Lightning!

Wow, wish I had my camera tonight. Saw some truly amazing lightning leaping out across huge distances over the Las Vegas valley. The coolest ones were mostly horizontal with super long fingers for what must have been several miles. Crazy big lightning! I'm sure there's got to be some pictures on the net of it - if not already, soon. It's still happening and I saw several out with cameras. Very cool!

Oh golly, I love lightning!
I managed to make a photograph of one, once - but it was only a centimeter long or so and all the way up in the corner of the picture...

I'd think it would be really hard to get any good pics of lightning unless you are out there forever taking pics, or have a camera that auto snaps or something. Friend of mine got a really good one, but it was the usual vertical type. I was most impressed with the horizontal fans that would light up a huge portion of the sky for miles. Still, I wouldn't mind snapping a vertical one either.

It's supposed to rain tonight, but no sign of lightning or rain so far.

My in-laws were in the USA a couple days back and they told me Vegas was HOT.
Nothing different here, I'd love to see some rain right now! The grass is turning brown and I can't get outside without getting dripping wet from sweating.
