lightning strike

A storm passed over my house this evening bringing hail, thunder and lightning. This lightning strike hit Kaitake, between the townships of Oakura and Okato, knocking out power to many households in the area. The following morning I saw a huge tree next to the road split in half at the site of this strike. The power of nature!
