I like that WeatherBug finally added an actual tracker to their app instead of just the distance.Tough_Boots wrote:I didn't realize until today that there is such a thing as a portable lightning detector. Anyone have any experience with these?
Does that give you enough time to squat, put your head between your knees and kiss your @$$ goodbye?CannondaleKid wrote:Portable lightning detectors have been around since the dawn of man...
When your hair stands on end during a thunderstorm it's a pretty good indicator of a strong electrical event about to happen.

Was about 10-20 feet away. Couldn't hear for two days. Worse than post-concert. Back in AL, I was about 10 years old. My dad and I had just gotten out of our vehicle at someone's house and it hit a tree probably no further than 10-20 feet away. Was VERY lucky to not get actually hit. Loudest sound I ever heard. Louder than our field artillery in the Army...autumnstars wrote:I wonder how many people on here have been struck by lightning?
My guess is that it would be a higher % than the average population.
