The Day Lightning Struck

I have been working on revamping this art table for the SKBs for a while now.  Not because what I am doing is time consuming but because it seems like every time I have a chance to take it outside to sand, stain, etc., a storm seems to come my way.

The good little blogger that I am, my thought was that when it was finished, I’d post a picture of the rainy days that I had to put this off for. 

So, there I am snapping photos of yet another rainy afternoon when…POP!!

See the sparks on the top, left?  THAT’S WHEN LIGHTNING HIT THE TREE!!!  Ok, so, here’s a dead giveaway that I’m a blogger.  As soon as it happened, my first thought was, Darn!  If I’d only been a couple of feet to the right I would have gotten a better shot! (BTW, more on a dead giveaway that I’m a blogger next week.)

Here’s our poor tree.  I’m hoping it survives it.

Have a lightning-storm free weekend, everyone!

It's pretty cool that you even got the picture of the sparks!

Wow, lucky it didn't hit the house! The tree should be fine, we had a tree in our front yard that was split down the middle and both halves survived!

That is an incredible picture, even if you were not a little to the right.

You take such amazing pictures. I'm impressed. I cant believe how aggressive your weather is. That poor tree. That table is awsome, great for arts and crafts.

The poor tree will survive, his branch will be growing little by little every day.
