Divine Intervention on a Polish Mountain?

My wife and in-laws had just 'survived' a very scary hike through a lightning storm, from the summit of Sniezka, the highest peak in Poland's Karkonosze Mountains, across an open, exposed ridge to this hut, Schronisko Strzecha Akademicka. We were terrified of being struck by lighting and were soaking wet. Upon reaching the hut, we sat at the only available table, across from the very pleasant Polish nun in the picture. The 'divine' lighting and angles in the photo speak for themselves.
