Video: Alternative headline: Tree takes a lightning strike and is somehow still standing? I don't know who the actual winner is here. The lightning bolt that struck the tree and ripped half of the trunk away while flooring all of its branches, or the tree that takes the bolt's best shot and hangs in there quite admirably? Whatever it is, I'm just glad the security cam caught the footage and not my actual eyeballs because the flying shards would have owned me.
