Struck by Lightning

July 16th, 2012

Wow! Six years ago today, I was struck by lightning. I even recorded it, audio on the link. Of course, it didn’t exactly hit me–the main bolt hit a few feet behind me and to the left, otherwise I might not be here any more. But some part of that lightning bolt split off and struck my foot.

I did not find out until a few days later that a co-worker and friend was hit in the exact same way by lightning on the exact same day, maybe just a few minutes before me.

I get hit indirectly by lightning, happen to be recording it at the time, and someone I know is also being struck on the far side of town at about the same time.

I am still in awe at the odds of that.

    It’s OK, I see it. CRAP but that thing is persistent. I installed two different anti-exploit plug-ins after the last major cleaning and the fracking thing STILL keeps coming back. It looks like I will have to, at some point, completely clean and re-install the whole blog, which will be a major pain in the ass. Google isn’t helping by calling my site “compromised,” which it is but in a harmless way–in fact, in a way that only affects THEIR results!
