    Wow, this is just about as exciting as getting a "participation" medal for a race.

    Seeing a lightning strike from a close didstance can blind you temporarily. Blindness can last 2 minutes, 2 hours, 2 days..., depends on how close you were and if you were looking directly at it. (also the brightness/voltage of the strike can vary)

    I think what's more entertaining than the lightning strike video is the number of apparently arbitrarily disgruntled site visitors who seem upset that this vid was posted here.

    Somebody has too much time on their hands.

    Is WITN really this money hungry that every single video has to have a commercial attached?

    I don't see any lightning.

    If you watch closely when video begins a lightning flash occurs.Only lasts about 5 seconds. You will miss it if you are not looking right at video. Very poor picture in my opinion.
