Default When the lightning starts, get off the water!

I've been guilty of pushing the envelope now and then. I think I'm over that now. How very sad.

Sad indeed.


I beached my boat and sat on the shore for a half hour last night.

Many years ago had a lightning storm come up while on one of the lakes near Mt Hood, Oregon. Kicked my pontoon to the nearest shore as quick as I could. Then found myself wondering if sheltering near tall trees was all that smart.

Just got done fishing a open northern NM lake as a thunderhead blew over. Every time I raised my rod... I would feel static electricity hit my hand. Regardless to say we didn't stay long....

Being a father of 3 girls (10, 13, & 14) I can only imagine what that poor man is going through. My deepest condolences to him, his wife, and family. Many of us take life for granted and this is a tragic reminder that everyday we get to spend with family and friends is precious.

Ive had that happen too. I heard a humming and couldnt figure out what it was till i eventually figured it out and stuck my ear close to the rod. I slowly put it down and just watched my dunk rod. Very creepy feeling.
