Default Re: What is happening

I remember sitting in classroom just after school (I was in detention!) when the school's bronze external bell was hit by lightning. I could almost swear that we heard the "bang" before we saw the flash.

The flash travelled down the wire rope used for sounding the bell, leapt to the floor and exited to ground via a paving slab.

It cracked the bell which sounded rather weird for evermore.

My oldest brother was once very close to a lighting strike when he was a teenager, it knocked him down and to this day he has no leg hair from his knees down.
