You never know where lightning will strike but not knowing is what makes it both amazing and scary. The electrical charge hangs in the moist air and the darkness surrounds you. The clouds flash with light even if you don’t see the jagged bolt escape them reaching for the ground. You wait on the porch, mesmerized, hoping to see that beautiful display of nature even though you know it is dangerous to be outside. Then it hits. You are rewarded for your patience and in a second it is gone as quickly as it came. With the light show over, you turn to go in the house. Your chest rumbles with the thunder and the loud clap that follows. It is never appreciated.
