Seminary Lightning Storm
On Wednesday night, we had a quite spectacular storm here in Denton, Nebraska, where Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary is located. I was woken up by a loud thunder clap, and was unable to get back to sleep due to all the flashing and thunder. So I went to my window to have a better look, and decided to get our camera out to take some photos and video. There were rather a lot of photos, and you can see them all on our Facebook page, but I will put a few here as well. This first photo was taken while there was no lightning - it was pitch-black. All the pictures after that were taken during the same night, so the sun is not shining in any of them:
The darkness of the night. All the following photos were taken during the same dark night.
For a fraction of a second everything is as bright as a summer day!
A faint shadow of God's almighty power can be seen in the nature He created!
Some video footage of the storm. There were a lot of smaller flashes which the camera didn't pick up, but you can get the idea.
