I’m so lucky to have them!!!
The storms that have been passing through are very intense with the wind and lightning putting on quite a show. My yard is full of branches, again! My nephew Colton and I spent Sunday cleaning up from the last storms taking tarp load after tarp load of leaves and sticks into the woods. It looked great for a couple of hours. I do admit that I love to watch the huge trees swaying in the wind and take in the excitement of the lightning show. Interestingly a single bolt can reach 50,000 degrees and strike the earth nearly 100 times a second. Lightning always accompanies a thunderstorm, although the storm may be so far away that we don’t see the rain or hear thunder. Lightning is attracted to the positively charged ground and most likely to strike the tallest object in the area. Don’t believe the myth that “lightning never strikes twice,” as many flashes strike over and over again within a few seconds in the same area. Good news…the chance of being stuck by lighting is about one in 3 million. Bad news… over 10,000 forest fires are set by lightning each year.
