Shit man did you hear that story about the one bolt of lighting that struck 13 people and killed one of them on July 4th? That's some scary shit right there.Nothing like a lightning rod on the water. The most afraid I've ever been in a storm was when a buddy and I were out fishing in his aluminum flatboat and a big storm came up out of nowhere. We raced back to out campsite in that open boat with lightning cracking all around. It didn't get any better when we got to the campsite since we were in a tent with metal poles holding it up.
We just hunkered down and sat there waiting for that one bolt to hit the tent frame and fry us as we drank cold beer. Never happened, but that day has never left my mind and that was over 30 years ago now.
Lightning strike kills 1, injures up to 12 at SC July Fourth gathering, reports say
