Our tree was struck down by lightning.
I believe that it was struck while we were away Saturday evening. After the kids were in bed I heard a loud crash against the house. All I could see was that the tree fell over. The next morning I saw the charred tree. What else could have cut the tree in two and left it burnt and charred? What are the chances? The house wasn't hurt...from what I can see. Rhett has been nervous of lightning ever since he learned about the tree. It's a good thing lightning doesn't strike in the same place twice.
*Regarding the spider in the car...I wasn't driving. I tried to jump out of the passenger seat, but it was locked! If I was driving I think I would have crashed the car for sure.*
