Day before yesterday, while driving down the street with my wife, daughter, and her fiancee, I had the (pleasure?) of witnessing an actual lightning strike about 30 feet or so, directly overhead. It hit a transformer. There was, of course, an explosion, fire, and a shower of sparks. A thrilling experience to say the least. It really does look like it does in the movies.

I had seen a lightning bolt hit a transformer a few years before. It was through my home-office window. Power was knocked out in the area for several days and my wife and I had to stay in a hotel until power was restored. Ahhh....the memories. I can look back on the incident with amusement now, but, at the time, it was a dire dilemma.
