Duck and cover II

It was just last month that we narrowly avoided a tornado.

It was just a few hours ago that we narrowly missed being struck by lightning:

No. That is not us in the picture, nor is that our house. It is across the street, though.

MORE: No one was injured, and the tree that was struck hit no houses. You can barely make out a house in the background behind the tree. The family who lives in the house to the right of that one was on their back patio when the lightning struck. They describe the strike as the tree simply exploding. Also, "toothpick splinters" from the tree the length of a javelin and the width of a grown man's arm were found implanted in the ground up to a hundred feet away.
