That last lightning strike did more than knocking out DU for an hour!
What a storm (Greenville, SC)! Sparks flying, side-ways rain, poor Nick-Nick in the closet! I just found out that a house a half mile away was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. A big house at the country club. Bad shit, that. Man, I hope all those late golfers are OK.

1. We had strong electrical storms here in Ky yesterday.
It's been bad for farmers. During June and July, when the crops should be growing there was little if any rain. Now when they are trying to harvest, the rain is coming.

Oh great... just what I need.

Glad you're ok!

6. I think you will be in the clear, for the most part.

7. Got any antennas up?
Mine are down right now. I have been able to sleep through storms lately.
