I had a bolt of lightning strike right beside my car as I was traveling down 81 to the station here like 30 years ago. I will never forget it, just before it hit all the hair on my arm and head stood up right just as I passed by the ground that was charged and I heard this snap and sizzle like God had snapped his fingers. This bolt of intense light came out of the sky and hit the medium right beside my car. That bolt was as wide as my car was long and the boom that followed was deafening so much so I couldn't hear out of my left ear for at least a couple of days. The video here was shot by Scott Sheppard where it was close it doesn't seem as intense as the one that hit near me. It still seems pretty intense interesting to note the holes left behind in the pavement.
