    Default Lightning

    Just saw over on Facebook that the shop got hit. Prayers for all and hope damage is minimal.

    Thanks for the update. I stopped in Alcoa to run on my way home from the office and had never seen so much lightning at one time south of Maryville. Sometimes I would see 5-6 strikes at the same time.

    They said (I assume Daniel) just a few minutes ago that everyone is fine, no fire, just some fried electronics. Thankful for that!

    Glad everything, for the most part, is OK. Lightning is definitely nothing to mess with and can do some damage.

    I'll never forget backpacking up Deep Creek on a fishing trip several years ago in early April and having a lightning storm roll through about 4 a.m. The lightning was crashing around us like crazy, hitting trees and we could hear what sounded like the occasional one fall. I don't think I've ever felt so helpless in my life.
