lightning tree 20190210
I'm sure we've all seen a few of these out in the bush but I'm still in awe of the power of the lightning bolt,splinters of wood where found 20 meters away.
A good reason to get skidaddle when a storm passes over Shocked

G’day moredeep,

We had one of those just down the road from us, but we didn’t get to take a photo of it. As it’s all been cleaned up the next day, but you’re not wrong the mess was all over the road. Shocked

Cheers.

Mike.

Hi mike,It would be a bit of a dilemma as to which would be the worst part being near a tree that was hit by lightning,the lightning bolt it self,or hit by a massive splinter .
I've cacked my daks a few times over the years from close calls and I refrain from making jokes as sadly people have died from from this act of nature.
you-tube has some great vids of trees being hit.

G'day gents.

Although one has better chance of winning the jackpot in Tattslotto, than being hit with a lightning bolt, but, lets not push it, cause it just might be our unlucky day  Shocked  affraid  It is said that a typical lightning bolt may contain up to a billion volts & between 10 to 200,000 amps of current. I would hate to imagine, the repercussions on the human body of absorbing the full brunt, of such a lightning strike.  Shocked

You're right kon ,FATE,wrong place at the right time,I suppose old charlie was not a direct hit as such, as apposed to indirect hit which I think most cases are.
If you have to stand under a tree[apparently] stand at least a meter from the trunk so the bolt won't arc out onto you then to earth.

I know of a bloke that has been hit by lightning and he has never won the lotto but he has got a glowing personality. He can also find gold regularly.

Cheers
