Lightning Strike!

Here we see the aftermath of a lightning strike that had occurred about 1 1/2 miles from the house. I saw the flash in the direction of the park and we heard a loud thunderclap during a recent storm. This tree may very well be the object of that particular hit.

(Click on any picture to see the damage on the tree and the debris field!)


    1. It was not quite that dramatic! I saw a big flash in the vicinity during the storm. A couple of days later, we saw this tree on one of our walks – it was about 20 feet from the path and the debris was everywhere. We deduced that it is probably the tree from that lightning strike. The picture does not do it justice – the magnitude of the damage makes one appreciate the power of nature.
