Flash

There was a thunderstorm over Coventry. My son was at home, playing some online game thing. He phoned me at work to say a lightning bolt had hit the house. A blue flash arced out of the router to the (metal) trolley-thing the computer is sitting on at the moment. My god, he could have been hurt. The computer, amazingly, doesn't seem damaged, but the router doesn't work any more, so no more broadband at home until it's fixed. I consider this a very lucky escape. No more using any electrical equipment during thunderstorms.

I was in the bath during a storm the other night, with the bathroom window open. After a few moments, as the bolts rained down, I got out of the water and ran away.
