DemoTex hasn't posted since Tuesday -- I lied...
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 10:01 PM by Catshrink
Wondering what happened with all the lightning and concerned for his safety. Anyone know anything? I'd be scared to death up in a watchtower all night in the middle of nowhere during a T&L storm.

on edit -- he posted a new thread yesterday. I did a search and the thread didn't come up. Thank you sandnsea for setting me straight!

1. That tower is pretty well grounded... I expect he's
either working really hard.. or sleeping like a log.

2. He posted pics yesterday
He's okay so far and it's a fairly nice weekend.

3. Safest place to be is inside a metal cage
which is why cars are so safe. I imagine that's the construction of much of that watchtower, any lightning strikes would be carried around him into the ground.

Either he's on a break or he's busy.
