Scientist have shown that lightning actually comes UP from the earth, and not DOWN from the clouds. I wonder what's in the area of the pavement? Maybe a manhole cover or some heavy grating? I bet the trees are all dead now.

That's a certain type of lightning. I've actually seen it with my own eyes. Only once, luckily, in the middle of a red hot day. Not even any clouds or anything.

the closest I've been to a lightning strike was about 20 meters struck an aerial on a low roof. I just happened to be looking in that direction. it appeared as flat white line

Although ground-to-cloud lightning does occur, cloud-to-ground is much, much more common.

Should have happened on the 4th of July? People would have gotten a short but good show out of that incident.
