Hello all

Love the site. Already found a bunch of helpful info. Going to toss some eels tonight and hopefully not get hit by lightning. Look forward to reading more posts.

Welcome MikeD! There was an article in On The Water this month about lightning. Here are a couple of facts I did not know:
The count how long it takes for thunder to sound off after seeing the lightning is not as I believed. You take the number of seconds you count and divide by 5 (10 seconds is only 2 miles away) not 10 miles like I thought.
It is not safe to go back out until at least a 1/2 hour after the last lightning.
If your rod starts buzzing that is because it is leaking charge and is how lightning connects with the ground. A difference in the amount of positively charged particles between the ground and the storm clouds. The positively charged particles from the ground are climbing through your rod looking to connect with the storm cloud.
There is no safe place outside, crouching doesn't work, you need to seek shelter and not put yourself in the position to be caught outside far from shelter.
So stay safe out there.

Welcome! You wouldn't happen to be Mike D from the Beastie Boys?

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

See, this is the type of good info I'm talking about! Appreciate the thought. And fishbones, I'm not that Mike D, I did spend most of my highschool years with the Beastie's "Pauls Botique" in my walkman though.

Pauls Boutique is one of the most underrated albums of all time.
