to my delight, this evening was occasioned by a remarkable
monsoon lightning storm. It started out far to the east of us,
and gradually built up energy before dumping a grand portion of rain
on us. There was lightning all over the sky; the thunder
pounding with incredible permanence.
In the middle of typing this blog, we were hit with yet another
cell. I jumped at the chance to take my camera and tripod
outside once more to gather as much footage as I could. I also
yanked my laptop out and conferenced in my brother via MSN
messenger; though the video quality was less than admirable, it was
better than not experiencing and of the grandness of this event.
I had the fortune of taking quite a few great pictures of the event.
Head on over to the photos section of
the Web site to see my preliminary gallery. I have also
posted a rather lengthy video below, which details some of the more
intense moments of the lightning storm.
