I guess I asked for it!

So, the other day, when I posted the storm picture and mentioned how excited I was for thunderstorm season to start, maybe I should have clarified WHEN I wanted a storm! It seems that someone was paying attention to me, and wanted to give me a nice birthday present. Yup, today is my birthday!!!!!!! (Nope, I'm not saying how many:-) )
Last night, I was supposed to go to a concert for a while, and also two parties. (that might give you some idea of what age range I fall into!) However, there were crazy storms, and it seemed safer for a little while to stay at home. My mom, who lives about 20 minutes away from me, called and said that a tornado had touched down between where she is and Omaha. The storms were headed pretty much straight for Omaha. So, I stayed home for a while, and missed the concert. I kept myself busy, though, taking 8,000 pictures in the hopes of getting a fun lightning shot! So, today's post represents nature's early birthday present to me!

Ok, ok, I guess I should have posted a disclaimer: I have a slight tendency to exaggerate. Well, not really, but if I want to say a LOT of something, for some reason 8,000 tends to be my random number lately. So, no, I did not really take 8,000 photos.
I did however take somewhere around 40, which felt like a lot.

This shot is beautiful! I have a Canon Xti and was trying to get a similar shot, but had no luck! I guess you have to keep shooting!!!
