I was on a moving job today. Just got done loading the final piece, sent the guys to the cab of the truck and went to do a final walk-thru with the owner...


Out of the corner of my eye I see a weird whitish purple glow, a HUGE BANG and a warm shot to my chest.... I got to the house, hand on my right side gasping for air... the home owner comes out of a bedroom asking: What the hell happened? All I could say was... I was struck.



It took a few minutes for me to catch my breath, get my bearings and process what just transpired...


The tree I was walking not 10 feet from... was hit by lightning! The pain I felt was from a piece of bark that had exploded from the tree's trunk...






So..... Hi! How are ya? Glad to be here!



and YES.... I bought a Power Ball...
