Storms rolled through the Bluegrass region tonight, with wave after wave of dangerous lightning. One strike was so close to our home that we heard a loud POP and all electric went out! Luckily everything came back on and it appears nothing was damaged as far as electronics. I guess we will have to wait until daylight tomorrow to see if it hit anything on the exterior of our home.
I was foolhardy enough to lift our garage door and stand just inside to capture this shot, but it paid off! You just can't imagine how many times I tried to catch the lightning only to have that shutter be just a second too slow.
P.S. Well we found out the lightning bolt hit a utility pole near our home. I hate to think how loud it would have been if it had actually hit our house :-( There were pieces of wood scattered about on the ground and you can see where the top of the pole has big chunks of wood missing from it!
