Sweet Storm

This storm rolled through Omaha last week. Crazy amount of wind and rain followed by amazing beauty. We were at our church with about 100 little kids at a soccer and cheer camp.

They were all inside when the 70 mile an hour winds hit.

The kids did not care - but the adults - they were a little freaked out. The tornado sirens where going off. No tornado - they turned on the sirens because of the strong winds.

The flash in the middle of the pic - lightning.

I tried to time the lightning strikes - they seem to be happening every 5-10 seconds. So I counted and held the shutter down.
