Tornado lightning near Murphy, NC

My bro in Cumming, GA sent me this pic of tornadic activity near where he hangars his plane in NC. Pretty awesome shot, out of all that devastation that has occurred.

I've seen a bunch of funnel clouds in my day. Never seen one with lightning bolts on it. Looks digitally altered to me. Anybody else care to weigh in?

Growing up in SE Kansas, I don't remember seeing that sorta lightning activity either, butt we headed to the underground 'fraidy hole when tornados came around. I'll have him check the pic out and see if he's funnin' me.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".
