more on lightning

Carl Weil's picture

yes Schrund in you comment on my march 10 post---Colorado and Florida are usually the high point on the chart re this phenomena. To the best of my knowledge no one really knows how many strikes of a none fatal nature occur. I once attended a lecture on lightning and was able to ask the crowd of around 80 how many of them had been struck. Turns out over half including my self were survivors who had been struck with no apparent ill effects which of course do happen on occasion to survivors. Our Wilderness Advanced Life Support class starts next Wednesday and we are all working to be ready for that. There are still a few spaces if any wish to join. more soon. Carl
