    I am terrified of lightning! I sit on my couch looking over the North Shore and scream, then laugh at myself. I eventually got a headache. Later on I went outside to video some of the lightning show. I sent the video clip to those who didn't see the forks. I read a comment on facebook about two guys who were outside working, when the lightning became fierce, one ran inside while the other appeared to be frozen with fear. Later he said he wasn't scared. ( of course he wasn't) he said God was taking photos with the flash on so he POSED! Good save!
