Very cool. Years ago I saw the results of a similar event after the fact... a hemlock tree on forest land I owned had been hit by lightning, and the trunk was partially blown apart. I recall the six- to eight-foot long shards of wood sticking in the ground like long spears around the tree. I would have loved to see (and hear) the strike, but I'm sure glad I wasn't anywhere near that tree when it happened!
