A few nights ago the storm that killed over 300 people spawning tornadoes all across the South passed over Wrightsville Beach. We got some strong winds, but not a drop of rain. It was really strange. I was at the beach when it went offshore. It was like it had saved up all this energy and began unloading it all in the form of lightning. We never had any lightning on land. Just over the ocean. It raged for a few hours out there sweeping up the coastline. One of the best lightning shows I have ever seen. I could hear people off in the distance on their porches in awe of what they were witnessing while I took photos. Nature is so beautiful and so brutal.
