This is a short video from a security camera at a school in Tyler, Texas, of a lightning bolt blowing the limbs off a tree. It reminds of the time I was driving through the woods in Darnestown, Maryland and lightning struck a tree in front of me no further than forty or fifty feet away. All I could see was pure white light for a second. That's when I knew I should start going back to church. Now Jesus is my copilot which is awesome because I don't drain my phone battery using Google Maps or Waze anymore. "Stop by Taco Bell." Jesus, we just went Burger King!
Hit the jump for the video, then tell me what that puff of smoke on the right side of the video was.
Thanks to Tyler A, who once tried to harness the power of lightning to trim his Christmas Tree and that was the beginning of the house fire.
