Lightning around the world

I have no use for rain, but I love a good thunderstorm. One of my mom's favorite stories from my childhood was when she offered that I could sleep with her during a storm, and I replied "Why? Are you scared?" Today's Big Picture has some great shots of lightning and its aftermath. Numbers 10 and 16 are especially remarkable.

These are great pix. I've never seen lightning storms like these. When there's lightning at night in Hawaii, there's always rain and the bolts are never as crisp as in these pictures. I feel like I'm missing out on a great thing.

Come to the Midwest! We know how to do storms. If you're (un?)lucky, you might even get to see a tornado. ;)
