Gravy. - I saved this picture from yesterday when I was checking on the weather. All those little boxes are lighting strikes here in mid-Florida.

I grabbed the pic from my favorite weather site. Weather Underground.
This is just mid-Florida. At the time I grabbed the photo we were averaging 120 strokes a minute across the state.
And why when I see a lightning flash my reflex is to start counting to figure out just how far away it is.
