I had a heifer over the weekend that was hit by lightning, and fortunately it didn't start a grass fire.  The lightning exited the cows tongue and blew her eyes out.  That’s not something I would like to experience.

 

The point is don’t mess around with lightning.  The chances of you being struck if you are within a few miles is 1 in 500,000 and the chance of being struck in your lifetime is 1 in 6250.  Those odds are too high in my book.  I now have more respect for lightning than ever......
