Default Land of the Midnight..... Lightning?!

This is nuts. I guarantee it's a record for strikes. I've seen about 50 in just an hour of watching.

The close ones that light up the whole sky and ground to give a split second of near daylight are the ones that scare me. Saw a few of those on the drive in, and plenty of others far away. Was nice with the orange sunset across the flats and lightning on the Talkeetna Mtns, wish I'd had my good camera and time to actually stop and take some shots.

It started a bunch of fires tonight in the Talkeetna area. Pretty cool seeing it though, we don't get to too often.

I saw this show first hand, living on the mountain, all I had to do was look straight up. Was great night for sleeping too. I feel so refreshed today!

i love watching lightning storms. used to watch them all the time in NE. but then we moved up here. i guess then i loved the mts so it was a trade off. don't see too many up here, but when we do, i always have to stop and watch for a bit.
