So here I am on the computer reading the forums and WAAAaaBAMMMMMMMMMM :eek: :eek3: Out of the corner of my eye I see an ORANGE flash. After checking my pants for any leaks :o , I saw that my neighbor's tree directly across the street from us got struck. That was the first time I have ever seen orange. That is a little too close for comfort.

Time to go clean up :D

Last Friday, I was working in a substation and could hear the lighting arrester start to go, then Bam. Loudest thing I have ever heard. What was great about it was that my boss jumped into the passenger seat of our work van and was kind leaning over the seat. Our customer jumped on top of my boss. Incredibly funny visual image.
