Run for cover and hide would be the logical thing to do in a lighting storm of this magnitude, right?  But that’s not what Roch Hart, an Albuquerque, New Mexico tour guide did.  Instead, he setup his camera on a tripod and began taking photos of the lightning storm that pounded the same area for over 11-minutes.

Apparently, each lightning bolt hits the ground with over 1-billion volts, easily enough to cook your steak to well done or fry your smartphone into a crisp.

“Due to Albuquerque’s high altitude of over 5,200 feet, plus the very dry atmosphere and moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, the conditions were right for multiple lightning strikes in a short time.”
