If you took even a passing glance at the sky last night, chances are you saw one heck of a show. A storm rolled through town, and though the rain was torrential and brief, the lightning stole the show. Multi-pronged bolts dominated the eastern sky and local photographer Dave DiCello (a great follow on Twitter if you enjoy beautiful photos of Pittsburgh) caught himself a few beautiful shots.

The New York Daily News even picked up DiCello’s photo and ran it today.

For as much as people complain about the weather here, at least it’s never boring.
