    Same thing east of Storm Lake. Almost as good as fireworks.

    Re: Lightning show

    That lightning show you're seeing is probably the tornado warning headed my way.

    That part of the state has gotten bombed all summer long. I would hate to live in Clarion or any of the small towns around there.

    Re: Lightning show

    That was about the most awesome show I have ever seen. We are about 60 miles away from where the radar indicated the storms were. We watched it for over an hour.

    Re: Lightning show

    I've seen similar lightning shows before. Especially my junior year of HS we were playing Council Bluffs TJ and a storm was rolling through NE Nebby, NW Iowa, and SE South Dakota. It was pretty cool to play during it. But eventually the game got called in the third quarter cause they were moving in.

    Re: Lightning show

    We saw it driving home to Altoona and assumed it was heat lighting - very cool.

    Re: Lightning show

    Watched it from the 2nd floor of our house in Ankeny. It went on over an hour. Heat lightning is awesome.

    Re: Lightning show

    I was at a going away party at a frat last night. Saw the lightning from afar, very, very cool. I was sad I couldn't get a good picture of the show.
