Thanks for posting.  I would love to take lightning pics someday, as they can look so cool.  

 

Had a decent storm here a couple months back, but I was driving home from work.  Super dark, and lightning was coming about every minute or so, for a half hour.  Would have been easy to get some great shots had I already been home.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Coastal British Columbia:

 

Quote

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain. A Pacific cold front will approach the BC coast this evening. Ahead of the front, conditions will be favourable for thunderstorm development over parts of the BC south coast tonight. Some of these thunderstorms have the potential to become severe in the eastern sections of Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Howe Sound and Whistler. The main threat of these severe thunderstorms are heavy downpours. Large hail is also possible with these thunderstorms. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
