Default Lightning Decimates Tree on Film

Ok, the film is cool. The tree is destroyed by God. I got it. That is not what I find cool.....

At about 0:23 lightning hits the tree. There is no microphone hooked up to the security camera. However, I get an audible pulse on the computer when the flash hits. I also think the CCD got overwhelmed by the pulse?! I just thought THAT was cooooool!

I have spent my life in electronics, agriculture, engineering, etc. I had a meeting with a small group of PhDs on killing Round-Up resistant pigweed, which is a terrible scourge around the US (and tasty too!). One PhD said only Mexicans and God can kill pigweed. Specifically, Mexican (cheap labor), would have to pick the individual plants out of the ground and carefully burn them. Otherwise, GOD could smite the plants and the plants were the tallest structures in the field of soy, peanuts, etc..
