Lightening Strikes

In the late afternoon of August 21, 2003, a particularly violent thunderstorm caused a lightening strike about 20 feet from the house. Jan was home and upstairs at the time. With the flash, she held her breath waiting for something to crash into the house. Fortunately, the tree missed; it fell across our front yard. The generator, which was running at the time, was not so lucky. The repairman said it was easier to list what wasn't broken than what was. The force of the tree splitting sent pieces in all directions.
