Hemlock struck by lightning Sept. 5 not far from our house

Lightning hits tree not far from us!

Last night was a terrible thunder and lightning storm that passed through our region. We stayed awake for awhile watching it and shuddering each time it got closer and closer to us. Then it hit almost on top of us! Friday morning our neighbor, whom we met at the local Safeway in Duvall, said that the lightning struck a tree about 300-400 feet from our place. We knew that it was close to us, but didn't think that it did any damage until I walked through the woods to see this tree. It was shattered to pieces!
