Storm Overhead

Over looking Lemon Valley and Stead which are suburbs of Reno. I went to the top of a hill to get some photos of the sunset when a large storm blew in overhead. As I was taking this photo a very large lightning bolt hit about 50 feet from me. Well needless to say I got my ass back to my truck fast. It started raining so hard I had a hard time seeing the road. We had a 8 hour power outage so I couldn't download the photo till the next morning. The neighbors were out and about late into the evening it was so hot and muggy no one could sleep.
