Hit by lightning? :D I'd like to learn about that. I've done life saving work on people hit by lightning but never hit my self. Glad you're here to tell about it. :)

All over and done with in a second - there was an almighty bang, and equally almighty flash that engulfed the whole car, and that was it. We were stationary at the traffic lights at the time, might have been different if we were moving, but the tyres being rubber do not conduct electricity so we were perfectly safe as the current could not earth. :)

We were always told that being in a rubber tired vehicle was the safest place in an electrical storm if there was no solid building around so I guess it's true. I know several times a bunch of us would crowd into a pickup when a storm came upon us.
Did you have lingering after images from the intensely bright light? That's something you won't forget.
My closest encounter with lightning was being in a fire lookout triangulating to find where a fire was with the main lookout a few miles away and hear the electricity buzz and snap on the corner lightning rods. The tower and ladder led up into the small area where the spotting scope was, and was metal. The floor was wood slats so I hunkered down with only the rubber soles touching the floor. Hearing the electricity was enough; I think being engulfed in lightning would be a little too intense for me.
Thank s for the information: Did you develop any superpowers from the event :)

The only lingering images are of the then Miss RM who screamed loudly next to me, and yes that flash was bright!
Your tale of the fire lookout sounds particularly scary, not exactly the best location in such conditions. Although a strike can kill, there have been cases where people have been struck more than once and lived. I'm sure someone got struck 5 times and was ok - incredible when you've more chance of winning the lottery jackpot than being hit by lighning. He must have had those superpowers. :lol:

The person who was struck 5 times by lightning - 7 he said - was a park ranger who worked most of his career in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. The park is basically a 105 mile long mountain ridge 2000 feet above the lowlands on either side of the park. Once he was in a vehicle but had the window open. Some are skeptical but he had burn marks from at least two hits.
I bet Ms RM let out a scream!
The state of Florida has more lightning strikes than any other place in the world. Surrounded by large bodies of water of different temperatures on either side of the state and in the path of many hurricanes.
Yeah, climbing up a metal ladder and opening the trap door at the bottom of the lookout 50 feet above the ground in a storm is Not Fun. Once you made it in, you were OK, more or less, The ladder was completely vertical and you had to reach back, once you opened the trapdoor, and pull yourself up into it. It was like a metal box sitting on a power pole.
