People across Winnipeg got a light show on Wednesday night as a storm made its way through the city bringing rain, lightning, and thunder.

The storm delayed the Blue Bombers game until late in the evening.

It also lit up the sky with many Winnipeggers taking out their cameras to grab a shot of the lightning.
