    Gone as quick as it came. Now I'm "on grid". Damnit. I'll fire the system back up come daylight. About 30 minutes from now. It's 438 here.

    why does the little man panic over lighting? we have it almost daily here....did you know most lightening strikes come from 3 to 5 miles away?

    Deadly Facts

    On average, about 200 people are killed by lightning in the United States every year.
    The state of Florida holds the title of the “Deadliest State.” There are twice as many lightning casualties as in any other state. 10% of all people struck by lightning were in Florida at the time.
    The chance to be killed by lightning is 1 in 2,000.000. You have the same chance dying from falling out of bed.
    Never talk on the phone while a storm is breaking outside. Not only do cell phones “attract” lightning, but about 1% of all lightning deaths in the U.S. are a result of people talking inside the home on a corded phone during a thunderstorm.
    About 71% of all people struck by lightning survive. The fatal cases are usually the result of cardiac arrest. However, those who survive often suffer from serious health and psychological problems like loss of memory or sensitivity, insomnia, impaired hearing, or constant pain.

    During lightening storms, I recommend getting under the bed.
