Today, for the first time in my life, I actually saw lightning strike. It hit a tree next to the road we were on. At first we had no idea what it was. We were so close to it, it just seemed like a really bright light. Stupidly we stared at it, and probably damaged our eyes a bit. We were driving north and the tree it hit was on the south bound side of Parmer. I cannot imagine how bright it was for the people in the car right next to it. Oddly we didn't hear any thunder associated with it.
