    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...

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Let me get this straight, there was a bolt of lightning and a tree barked at you?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I've had lightning strike trees near me 3 times, but twice I was in a house and the other time in a car. That was scary enough for me.
