Lightning scares the crap out of me, I used to love it until one day I was in Venice.
In a matter of seconds the wind picked up and started blowing stuff everywhere I started helping this florist pick up his flowers and he was very flustered, you could feel the tension in the air, and suddenly BOOOOOM!
it blew about a skip load of roof from a house about fifty feet away. Underneath were two women pushing a baby buggy so I ran over but luckily the kid was out of the buggy and being carried. One of the women had quite a nasty gash on her leg from a falling roof tile but everyone was relatively fine. There were a couple of bricks in the buggy and I dread to think what would have happened if the kid had been sat in it.
I am OK if I am inside and still enjoy a good storm but if I am out forget it.
