    Yeah, you may want to just go back inside…

    Tuesday July 10, two Ouray, Colorado, residents were left frozen in their tracks after a massive bolt of lightning burrowed its way through a tree.

    The brief footage, captured by Todd Jones, initially shows one woman venturing to her car before stopping to clutch her pearls in the face of the fiery light. Meanwhile, in the lefthand portion of the frame, a man previously hidden is simultaneously seen leaping into view from behind a bush (probably in an attempt to dodge the splintered wood).

    Despite their fright in the moment, the two appear to continue about their day. You can bet at least one of them googled whether or not that saying "lightning never strikes the same place twice" is true.

      A Very Jealous Cat

      What do we know about cats? They are independent and walk on their own. For some reason, it is generally accepted that cats, unlike dogs, are not faithful, do not need to be caressed by the owners, and they see people as service personnel who are required to feed them and change the filler in the tray.
