One summer evening while in the Okanagan a storm rolled over us making lots of lightning and thunder. What a great opportunity. On to the pier I went with the camera on a tripod and a cable release. I set the camera to "bulb" pointed the camera to where I thought it more likely to be lightning and pushed the button. I would hold the shutter open until there was lightning then I would let go. So you won't know what you are getting till you got it.
