Just two nights ago, I was awakened by lightning at around 2am. It was incredibly bright and very scary.
I wondered how my horses were feeling about the lightning.
I wondered if it would strike and start a grass fire.
I wondered if I’d ever get back to sleep that night (I did, eventually…).
Soooooo… when the Backcountry Lightning Manual showed up in my mailbox, I decided that maybe it was timely and that maybe some of you would like the information. Maybe you’ve been laying awake, concerned, during a lightning storm…
