A Few Things Ill Considered

Awsome!

I lived in Tampa Bay, Florida for 6 months or so. They say it is the lightning capital of the world, I don’t know, but there was an awful lot. I loved it!

This is not Tampa, but you get the picture:

    Central Africa has the highest lightning rate, although Florida is highest for the U.S.

    “Well, when you live there, the US is the whole world! Thanks for the info. ”

    Never a truer word spoken.

    Darwin is a nice place to be if you like lightning.
