What Happened to Three of Chicago’s Tallest Buildings at the Same Time is Guaranteed To Make Your Heart Stop

Even by Chicago standards, the weather in the midwest U.S. has been bizarre and extreme lately. We’ve seen giant walls of fog caused in part by a bitterly cold winter that chilled Lake Michigan, and numerous lightning storms that last for hours. Local videographer Craig Shimala was filming a time lapse from his home earlier this week when he managed to capture a triple lightning strike on three of Chicago’s tallest buildings: Willis Tower, Trump Tower and the John Hancock Building. Even more incredibly, he filmed the same occurence almost four years ago to the day back in 2010.
