Ex-New York Giants linebacker Dhani Jones
got an incredible Instagram shot of a storm bearing down on Queens, N.Y. as his plane was departing LaGuardia Airport.
Jones shot the epic storm just as it was nearing the city at about 1:30 p.m. and tweeted the photo
along with this ominous message: "Check out what's coming at NYC?"
The former Bengals and Giants linebacker used to wrangle the NFL's top running backs but knows nothing compares to Mother Nature.
As his plane hovered at 10,000 feet, Jones— a globe-trotting adventurer— caught the freak storm right when New York City was coping with extreme temperatures and right before heavy rain, thunder and lightning wreaked havoc below. Four people were reportedly hit by lightning strikes.
"Through all my travels around the globe, I have always remained in awe of the power of Mother Nature, he said.
