just procrastinating

Thursday, July 14, 2005

I was driving home in a rainstorm yesterday and decided to call my wife on my new work cell phone. About a block from home I saw a lightning strike that I was sure hit our house. My wife heard a huge bang and saw a bunch of leaves fly around. Turns out it didn't hit the house, but it hit a tall oak tree about 20 feet from our house.

So I was wondering if that meant the tree was toast. A quick google search and turns out, probably not. Here is a picture of what the tree kinda looks like now, and here is what a tree looks like after it recovers. Not pretty, but it'll probably pull through.
