    Gotta be careful, lightning kills more people each year than most any other natural phenomenon.

    REMEMBER: If you can hear thunder,
    you are close enough to the storm to be
    struck by lightning!!!

    You guys cutting in the rain must be crazy. Where their is rain their can be lightning. There is always another day to cut grass unless you get struck by lightning.

    Arlene is probably just a tune up for us. We are east of her path, the worst place to be.

    Waiting it out in Pensacola, Florida

    Hope she stays less than a hurricane. You still got alot of blue roofs up there? Still plenty here on the Treasure Coast.
