You know you’re a little too close when…

…night turns to day.

I was standing there with my buddy Bryan Snider (check out his storm timelapse from last night!) when we both were blinded for about four seconds. I actually kind of got dizzy for a moment because I couldn’t see and my equilibrium went wacky. Or something weird like that.

The resounding thunder was crazy loud. And needless to say, ten seconds later Bryan and I had both packed up and were headed south!

The second picture is straight out of camera. Taken at 11:46pm.

    Wow, that is crazy. Sort of reminds me on one that you are I were at last year, but I suspect that this one was even closer.

    Great! I think about something like this happening to you every time you go out chasing… with our cute daughter in tow! Ugh.

    Yeah it was a bit too close last night. Glad nobody got hurt.
