nice man. I nearly got struck when I was like 16. a storm had just started, so I was reeling in some beach towels from the clothesline. my parents were away. a tree about 18 feet from me got zapped and bark lined about 20 ft tall. I had bark on me. I could feel the electricity. It was crazy. I was like 'holy shit. HOLY SHIT' after it happened. neighbors came out.... I wa sfine, but damn, too close for comfort.
almost 20 years later (fuck i'm old) that tree still bears its scar.

I estimate this strike was between 100 to 150 feet away.
Everything went purple, then white, and at the same time my ears were assaulted with the loudest noise I have ever heard.
Fuck being any closer than that.

Now I get my ass inside everytime I hear thunder.
I am not going to take any chances....... :rofl:
