Lightning Show over Los Angeles from our home - - same shot, different WB

Lightning is rare in the Summer in Los Angeles. But last night (08/14-15/2008) we were treated to one in the middle of the night for about one hour. This is a first attempt at photographing Lightning by me. I put the camera in Manual mode. Set focus at Infinity manually. Set the camera to "blub" & started trying to anticipate the lightning strikes. Then I would manually start to do long exposures hoping to have the camera sensor exposed at the correct time. Each time a lightning would strike I would end my shots. Here are a few examples of what I got. I've played with WB (White balance in these) as I'm really not sure what to set it to....
