    Sometimes the diaries with the most graphs and detail don't get the attention they deserve.

    I've had similar experiences on occasion.

    Thanks for posting it, and I'm quite happy to have NOT been on the receiving end of that lightening bolt. ;)




    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

    •  I lived in Orlando once.We had daily thunderstorms (4+ / 0-)

      You get used to it. People would just point up in the air when they were trying to talk, but you couldn't hear them because of all the thunder.

      I saw a video clip where scientists were studying lightning in Orlando by launching rockets into a thunderstorm. The ionized gas in the rocket exhaust would conduct the electricity back to their launch site.

      Since any model rocket leaves a trail of ionized gas, I was thinking that you could go to the store and buy a lot of raw chicken, steak, fish, etc. and put it in a ring around the launch pad.

      You could do a week's worth of cooking in a second!
