Even just standing in an open doorway during a thunderstorm is a really bad idea.  Don't try this at home, kids.

Judging by the delay from the flash to the boom, the bolt hit less than 400 feet (120 meters) away.  And it appears there was a leader less than 100 feet (30 meters) away.

I don't think youtube lets you see every frame. When I play it, all I'm sure I see is the leader, but if I pause it and drag the time scrollbar, I can only see the main flash. If I pause and unpause it several times, I don't see either. I hate youtube. Can you extract and post those two frames?

Thanks. Wow, the leader is very red.
