Lightning Strikes Boulder and North Boulder County Colorado


Lightning Thunder Storm Hits Boulder County Colorado

Colorado Lightning Thunderstorm May 23rd, 2011.  This storm came in from the south, I was in North Boulder County and saw it hitting over boulder and the Flatirons.  There were at least four award winning shots that I know I could have gotten but took with my eyes cause I could not get a good location to take that shot in time ( hope somebody did and was at the right place at the right time.  Part of the game. ) .  It was hitting about every ten to 15 minutes and lightning bolts hit over Boulder about  8 -10  times, good cloud to cloud and to ground strikes with a good bit of rain.  By the time I got here it started to die and go north. While I was driving to this location I could see lightning bolts hitting above the flatirons at the same time one almost hit a power line in front of me and that had to be 7-8 miles away.
