I have been afraid of thunder and lightning since I was a kid. At least I don't hide in the closet anymore.

I live in Florida which is considered the Lightning capital of the US. In our rainy & hurricane season which starts today, we have lightning storms quite frequently and the lightning strikes!

You may not believe this, but a few years ago, on a clear day with no bad weather in sight, a ball of sparks rolled toward me over a stonewall, across my driveway, and landed against my front door, disappearing. No trace of it was left. It was similar to the head of a lit sparkler, but more bluish. I never had an explanation of that by friends or people who deal with weather and would be interested in knowing what the heck that was!
