Lightning is super weird stuff... speed of light, and follows whatever path presents itself. Yoiks!!! That arc was crazy. If that didn't scare the pee out of me, the noise would have.

I think ball lightning is the strangest. Heard stories of a ball of lightning rolling though a house, until it finds a ground like in a stove, then kaBLOOEY!

Kinda offers an alternative to claimed UFO sightings.

Bet that woke him up !

Bill, I've never seen ball lightning but my entire family tells me about the time one rolled through my parents old farm house. I was the youngest by several years and don't remember it. My grandparents claimed they also saw ball lightning on their farm.

PS - Bill, thanks for leading us on Cliff Hanger during CM. I was hoping I had caught a picture of your truck with the front wheels off the ground on Hummer hill the day before but apparently I was too busy soiling myself.
