Lightning Storm During the Camelopardalids

A lightning storm intensifies as it moves from the southwest to the northeast.  This particular storm went slightly north of me.  As you can see in the later part of the animation, I was frantically putting away my equipment before the storm hit.  Fortunately, I made it without getting struck by lightning.  The storm only produced a few sprinkles as it moved across my location.  Unfortunately, the clouds covered much of the sky at the "peak" of the shower and beyond.
