|Lightning streaks over the house|
As the storm approached, I set up a camera on the front stoop and tried to get some pictures of the lightning. This was the best shot. It shows the lightning coming from the west, down toward the house, looping back up and shooting off to the east. The second shot shows the orange glow in the sky as a high voltage electrical tower burns near Lorton, VA killing power to much of our region. More storms are predicted for tonight.
