This came up on my fb feed
woman struck by lightning and killed

Happened in São Paulo.

We know it happens of course but the photographer caught the actual lightning strike.


It illustrates the real reason why weather warnings are so important.

We were once swimming in an outdoor pool when there was no storm or anything but it was cloudy. All of a sudden a bolt of lighting shot across the top of the pool - I swam faster than I've ever swum in my life.
