I read online that more people die each year in Ga. from lightning than from snake bites. My son wanted to go outside today when it was storming BAD. Lots of thunder and lightning and pouring rain. I printed out the story about the scouts, and the two who died in Ga. after lightning strike. Scary.

A buddy of mine pit crews for sports car racing and was in Florida at an event. He was near the track talking with friends when he and two others in the group were hit by a bolt outta the blue. He spent the night in a hospital, but was none the worse after that. I gave him a T-shirt for his birthday that said something like "I Survived Being Hit By Lightning." He wears it proudly--he was lucky.
