Watch: Stunning Summer Storm Video from Finland


A storm is gathering! And it's not gay marriage!

For my fellow weather freaks out there — this one was shot on Sunday night at Helsinki Hietaniemi beach in Finland.

  2. Yeah, looking sth from sci fi movies. It's been heavy storms in Nothern Europe durin this hot summer (hottest since 1914) and huge fires in even hotter Russia (in Moscow 50 day in a row temperature has risen over 30'C). Thanks for posting the video.

  3. Check it out with the music from "Inception" in the background:

    Positively frightening!

  6. It looks like the Day After Tomorrow is real... This is from Finland? I can hear all kinds of English being spoken.

  7. Makes one want to ask the question of all the conservatwits out there: "Just what parts of global warming and climate change don't you understand?"

  9. I live just one mile away from this beach. When the storm reached the city, within three minutes it became literally as dark as night. I´ve never seen such a thing, not even when I lived in Texas and Italy which have both pretty extreme weather.

  11. Whatever. This storm is too fat. And why is it so flamboyant? It makes all of us look bad. Please, it's cool only if you like old, tweaked out queens. Is that a lightning bolt tattoo? Ugh - why do these gays get trashy tattoos? It is only interested in sex and partying instead of working towards full equality. Homostorm FAIL.
