A lighting bolt hit a garage door in an instant as my stepfather walked through it. I saw it because I was in the garage and felt a surge of vibration and blinding light at the same time. It was so powerful that the top of the door frame was destroyed. WOW!! I have never seen anything that powerful coming from the sky. These accounts of lightening strikes that have killed so many humans and animals around the world in the last decade brings this memory up for me In a very vivid way whenever I read about them on SOTT.
