There was recently an intense thunderstorm in Boston that brought down trees and damaged many properties. It was a Sunday. I was home when the sky started turning an ominous shade of gray. I set my flipcam and tripod on the porch so I could capture video of the storm while I sat safely in the house. I watched as blades of lightning illuminated the sky, followed quickly by crushing sounds of thunder. After shooting a few minutes of video, I saw the rain was starting to come in horizontally. I went outside to grab my camera. At that precise moment, I remembered the lightning story I did just last week when a teen was struck while holding a screen door. I started to freak out and tried to run inside. In my haste, I slipped and this is the painful result. The worst part, the video was so uneventful!
