Too close for comfort

Summertime is storm time. I feel confident in saying that we’ve have more storm activity this year than we have had for a couple of years.

This photograph illustrates how close a lightning strike came to the dog’s yard. The yard is about 30 metres from the house, and the lightning strike was about 35 metres past the dog’s yard.

Thankfully the dogs were taking shelter in the house at the time so weren’t as traumatised as they might otherwise have been.

The lightning scar runs the length of the tree, from top to bottom.
