now , i am fascinated with Lightning due to an encounter i had , it happend a few years ago , and we were in a really bad thunderstorm , i could feel heavy static in the air , it was a very strange feeling , i kept telling my friend not to go outside ,i had a really bad feeling ,the static was so strong that the hair all over my body was standing , i presented this to him , but he kept telling me i was crazy and nothing was going to happen , he wanted to go outside and try and take some pics , and of course he did not listen to me , and went outside , as i was standing in the doorway , i recall wondering if this was the end of the world , that's how bad it was , the clouds were very low ,and lightning was striking every 10 sec it seemed like ,... well long story short , my friend was standing next to a light post and bam!!!!!! it hit so fast ! my first thought was that i had been shot in the head , i couldn't see i couldn't hear hear for what seemed like forever , but when i came too , i could see the sparks falling off the light , my friend was in shock ! but he was laughing and i recall him saying that was @#$%*&^ amazing , so we were ok , and he was closest to the strike , so close that it damaged his pace maker some how ,

so that was my experiences ,and i have been afraid of lightning ever since , but now everytime their is a thunder storm , call me crazy but i can feel the lightning .. strange i know

as always thank you ATS

I don't have to know the language that kid was speaking to know he said.

"That was one close MF"




That's all I heard the kid say.

I LOVE lightning as well!


My brother has had a recurring dream since we were very young that I was struck and killed by lightning. When we were really little he had the dream that we were on a baseball field, I was about 12, and he witnessed the strike that killed me standing next to a fence. We grew up, and it never happened, but the dream still scares him.

After a long canoe trip one day, my wife was about 20 years old, and she stood up on a rocky bluff and was shaking out her hair and getting ready to set up camp. She had long, thick hair, and I heard gasps from a couple of other people, and I turned to look, and my wife's hair was standing up in a big sphere in all directions. Her hair was very long, so it was a dramatic sight! There was a storm approaching, but we still had clear skies and sunshine. I was about 20 feet away, so without thinking, I just ran and tackled her off the bluff and into the water. She was PISSED!
But, then we climbed back up to the bank and everyone told her she was about to get struck by lightning, and we all hurried up with camp and hunkered down for the night. It was a very scary moment.

I watched the lightning strike our house once as a kid too. I was on my hands and knees at the foot of my bed, looking out the window at a night-time storm when lightning struck the electric meter about 20 feet down the same wall as my _ It blew out all the light bulbs in our house, blew the meter out of the wall, and started several small fires. My Mom and Dad ran and scooped me out of bed, and we stayed in a hotel that night, and for a few more nights. I was probably 8 or 9 years old at the time.

Such an amazing phenomenon.

Such an amazing phenomenon.
