Pretty lively storm that, shame about the tree in the way though.

27 May 2014 Storm chaser Scott Sheppard gets hit by lightning while shooting video out the window near Fairburn, South Dakota.

The strike hit his arm and then traveled down to the ground and blew a hole in the pavement. The lightning also disabled his vehicle and a passing car, both of which had to be towed. Scott has a sore arm but is otherwise OK.

As Black adder once said, there's a phrase one could use and it rhymes with 'clucking bell'.

I think they're under the canopy of a building, probably the hotel and the tree is in front of that :)

So you get out of a car, camera in hand and get struck by lightning but hardly flinch and dont drop the camera or get knocked to the ground.. Seems really odd to me.. not impossible just unlikely?
