    Just said a little prayer for them. Guess next time someone has to keep their eye on the weather.

    Lightning is far less predictable than the weather itself. I have been fishing out on my local lake when no storms were anywhere close, like 5 miles away and on the other side of the mountain and a bolt of lightning came out of nowhere and hit a tree just a few hundred yards from me. It never rained on the lake and the storm passed well north of the lake but lightning can happen miles away from the storm itself. Scary stuff and all you need is to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Golf courses are famous for these errant strikes when ever storms are in the general vicinity weather it is raining or not.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
