Pretty Lights and Loud Noises

There’s some beautfiul lightning going on over top of me right now. I’ve got all the lights out and curtains open on both sides of the house, so I can see that bolts are coming down on both sides fairly frequently. It’s too bad none of the cameras I have available at the moment can take decent pictures of these things. All I’m left with is the thought that, a couple km away in the sky, electrical breakdowns are occuring, resulting in torrents of sugar-high electrons. Also, EnviroCan’s IR snapshot of the region.
