lightning takes out a pine tree!
This from last summer. Note how the lightning corkscrewed downwards/upwards in a helical pattern. of course now this tree is dead. This is the fate of many many of tallahassee's pine trees, here in Florida, Tallahassee has over 85 thunderstorm days a year and pine trees have those deep deep tap roots that lightning loves!
I have heard, now, of many many people having their computers taken out too. it is NOT the electic line that lightning comes into, it is often the phone line! Surge-protect that phone/cable line NOW!
