Wow! Last night’s storm featured some of the most intense lightning I have seen in a long time. I can only think of one other time about three years ago when I saw so much lightning in one night. Kristi and I headed off toward Roosevelt in the evening yesterday to try to head off what I hoped would be an awesome storm. By the time we got out to Roosevelt Lake however the storm had started to tail off south toward Globe. We made it there in time to witness so very intense lightning but it was raining too hard to really get great shots.
We made one more attempt to get in front of the storm but it was still veering too far south so we decided to abandon it and head home. After stopping for a quick bite to eat we headed for home only to find another storm heading directly for us. As it turned out in the end, we didn’t need to go anywhere after all. One of the most intense parts of the storm ended up directly over us. The thunder was so loud it set off car alarms, frightened our dog and made my wife scream a number of times. All in all, it was a fun night .
For those of you who never played Mortal Kombat, the character “Raiden” was known as the Thunder God.
