An Attention Getter

Postby jbullard1 » Fri Apr 28, 2017 5:53 am

The storm that moved through our area the night of 4-26 was a real wakup call.
I was headed to the kitchen to get a sammich and all of a sudden the shy turned bright reddish blue and an immediate BOOM and rattling windows. I knew it was lightening but did not realize just how close I was to it until morning. This Sweet Gum tree is 60 feet from the patio doors. Needless to say I did not get a sammich.

Had that happen to a tree across the street at our old house. The lightning spiraled around the tree into the ground. Kilt her good.
