"when in a lightning storm,
if your hair stands on end,
hit the ground, because you're about to be struck."
about 45 minutes ago, i was jogging in the rain (happy to be enjoying the 79-degree temperature)... when suddenly, lightning and thunder came out of nowhere.
i was near a soccer field at calvary church (about a mile from my house), and things got so bad (lightning, followed by immediate thunder) that they were rushing the kids from soccer camp into the giant building.
all of a sudden, a crack of thunder seemed to occur along with a lighting bolt, and i hit the pavement! ..my hair isn't that long, and i could feel static electricity on my arms and at the top of my head.
luckily (for clare, the executor of my [not quite complete] will), i escaped physically unscathed (although i did run and hide in the church for several minutes).
-not the end.
