jake, our mastiff mix, was 95 lbs of big 'n tough canine -- except during t'storms.
he'd cower under a table, leaning on our legs, shaking uncontrollably.
it was the only time he ever showed fear...

The most memorable storm that I remember, was more for its location than for its intensity.
A group of us were touring Dorset, and had camped near Giants Hill, in Cerne Abbas.
At about 11pm one evening, the most wierd electrical storm started up, complete with multicoloured lightning, but no rain or thunder. There were just wierd "fizzing" noises, and a psychadelic light show for about an hour.

In the end, we all (the whole camp site, just like a scene out of "Close Encounters" when the spaceship comes down) just stood there in awed silence, as the opposite hill went from black, to neon blue and then pink, followed by brilliant white.

Just to add to the "pagan" effect, this is what was being illuminated so vividly on Giants Hill, which was directly opposite the camp site.

Then the rain started about an hour later, and most of us Pagans were washed out. I slept in the car, along with two other neanderthals.

Never forgotten it, though........

while Im respectful of lightning, Im also aware that people have gone entire lives doing really dumass things around it and have NOT been struck. This one friend of mine played golf and, when a storm came up, he stood under a tree along the fairway. Lightning struck the tree next to his and hes developed this invincibility feeling.
I dont do dumass things in lightning storms, like take a small aluminum boat out onto a lake and watch a storm. Or go out on a high point and stand under a tree. Those ideas just improve your chances of being struck. Apparently we had some wicked Tstorms here in Lancaster during the last few days and a number of people were struck (4) , nobody died, but one woman was on TV last night and she claimed that she still has acute dizziness and vertigo. She was doing wash when the storm came up and she just reached over to turn a knob on her washer when the bolt hit and blew almost all of her appliances out. (She apparently has a ground fault somewhere)

I have a large fulgurite section in my rock collection. This is a hunk of fused desert sand where a lightning bolt hit. There are some fulgurites in musea that show almost the entire production of the bolt in a frozen moment.

The lightning, the thunder, the weird yellow cast of the sky (when I was I kid, I used to think that's how it would look on Mars, then I would get really excited - thinking I WAS on Mars.) the smell of ozone.

It is a relegious experience. YES - I need more face paint - dancing until in a frenzy. I AM a pagan, I AM!!!!!

I love the way thunder rolls.
I envision all the miles of land it's sweeping over. The power of it.

I adore it all. I'd stand in the middle of the street, arms wide open, waiting and ready for anything.

The sun just came out in Albuquerque at 3:30 pm after about two hours of darkened sky, thunder, lightning and a short cloud burst.

I could whip up a few doozies if it would induce you to visit us A2Kers in New Mexico. The ball of lightning is in your court.

I've not hitchhiked in years and years, don't know if i could manage a trek that long. One thing is certain, the jeep can no longer be trusted for such a journey. Maybe some day, it has been more than twenty years since i visited the alleged land of enchantment . . .

We could provide Dys and Diane's Sally and my Maddy and Dolly to pull the jeep if it breaks down. Fred the parrot could direct the rescue. And Dys does have that red Porche that could push the jeep.
