When I read this article tonight, I was reminded of both last night and last week. Last night because we had some storms roll through that while we didn’t get the brunt of them, I was amazed at how much change lightning can produce.
Last week I read an article to my kids before our trip to Minnesota entitled “50 Crazy-Wonderful Things about the Earth (and Its Creatures) to Be Grateful for!” from Maria Rodale and number one was that there are 8.6 million lightning strikes in a day (and when lightning strikes, the air around it gets five times hotter than the sun!).
P.S. While this isn’t a rock that was struck by lightning, at least I don’t think so, I just like how it has holes in it (courtesy of the lake at our cabin in Minnesota).
