  1. Nature is so strong and powerful and some ti d's people lose there lives because they go out to see more or want to get closer to it I wouldn't be out in that esp the thunder and lightning I'm so scared of it I shake. But I agree it is awesome to see it

  2. How stupid and naive can people be, do them people not know that it's dangerous being near a lake during a lightning storm, this is exactly why there's a ton of history of lightning killing folks, people need to use their brains and stop being so dumb
