Blogger Nick Griemsmann has been traveling the world doing street evangelism by broadcasting live on Periscope. On July 29, he saw a beautiful sunset in Scottsdale, Arizona, with storm clouds moving in.

So Nick turns on his live recording and began messing around, imagining he is a weatherman on a TV station, taking requests from his live audience on his brand new phone. It seems Mother Nature did not like his act, because just then a lightning struck near where Nick was standing, making him jump and drop his phone! What a guy.

Nick, who is an author, speaker, producer and civil rights advocate, later said that it was like being close to an oven, he could feel the heat from the energy discharge next to him, making him feel a tingle all over his body.
