Video of the Day..............Night time Thunderstorm

I think it is fair to say we haven't had rain in a month considering the total recorded rain at the airport for July was 0.32" and it is August 5th.  I'm getting to realize we didn't get much rain last night at our house.  But it was a significant event so I had to catch some of the night lightning.  

This storm was to the south and it appears you can pretty clearly see the rain curtain at the base of the downdraft.  I recorded just over 10 minutes of pretty intense lightning but this 2 minute clip has the only cloud to ground bolts I saw.
