Intense close lightning & lots of lightning strikes from Saint Cloud, MN

Tonight was fun!!!  A non severe high based thunderstorm moved through the Saint Cloud, MN area this evening with some ridiculously intense amount of lightning.

I did not have to drive far, just to the south of town to watch the storm move in and then into the city to watch it move off to the east. 

In the video, there are some pretty close lightning strikes that made it a little scary but to be able to watch a great lightning show this late in the season is a treat.

I was even able to keep working on my Road To Nowhere project.

Here are some more photo on the Smugmug page. https://weatherpaparazzi.smugmug.com/9162015-Lightning

Looks like I need to get a few hours of sleep then back on the road to chase southern Minnesota later today.
