Lightning Is Not My Friend

Rain, I can take it or leave it. Lightning is another issue. It probably wouldn't be an issue if I didn't lose power every few minutes when it was happening. I have lost power 3 times within the last hour. Very annoying. I decided to take a look and see what kind of lightning was hitting our area. Uhhhhh. No wonder I'm having a problem... take a look at what is going on in south Florida:

I normally read you on my cell phone, which I can't comment on your site (don't know why that is... haven't figured it out yet) and since I suppress images (for faster downloads) I have to go to my laptop and then online to see the pics.

Wow! thanks for turning on to this site. What incredibly amazing level of data he's posted. Thanks for posting this.

BTW, I found the Laura Bush funny, even though I admire her. Thanks for the giggles!
