Blitzen



we got to sit out on the porch and watch a lightning show!
lots of oohs and aahs at the different strikes
my girlfriend got some good pics of it too!

but alot of the time I just don't need a reason to be happy.

be happy just because :) :) :)

Such a great experience :) I love watching lightening too ... streaks of fire across the sky, amazing, electric! There is so much around us allllll the time to be happy about.. i agree! x

...It was amazing that she successfully caught the lightning right when it strikes, that is hard...
I like the lightning just the sheer pwer, it is said that lightning explodes the air and produces plasma about
"An average bolt of positive lightning carries a current of 300,000 amperes, transfers a charge of up to .. 1 gigavolt (a thousand million volts), and lasts for tens or hundreds of milliseconds."
"The electric current passing through the discharge channels rapidly heats and expands the air into plasma, producing acoustic shock waves (thunder) in the atmosphere."
"..approaching 28,000 kelvins (50,000 degrees Fahrenheit) in a split second"
That is Power! Love it!

Very interesting!
