    Stood next to a strike once. I'll never forget the taste of it. Glad no one's hurt.

    On Fri 13th we had a lightning storm and it hit the transformer to our house. Called electric co to have them fix it. They pulled my meter!! Seems there was some kind of neutral problem and the breaker box was grounding out. We had to spend the weekend in a motel and run our freezers off a generator all weekend. Finally got an electrician on Mon afternoon and he replaced a 2 ft pc of ground wire. He said I was lucky it didn't set the house on fire...I have always enjoyed watching storms. Not anymore!!!!

    We just left LA! My sister lives in Andalusia and we went through some righteous storms on the way to and from Mobile. Lots of traveling. Glad you are ok!
