Lightning Strike

I do not know what the lightning bolt which struck the poplar tree twenty (20) feet from my trailer looked like, blasting the top twenty-five (25) feet of the tree right off, hurling sharply jagged pieces up to one hundred (100) feet away, and scattering the ground around the tree generously with jagged edged pieces from the size of a toothpick, to spears four feet long, but these pics of some of those pieces give some hint to the lightning bolt’s destructive power, and possibly its form.
