We are getting in to the time of year when afternoon thunderstorms become the rule instead of the exception. Most of us have enough sense to stay out of the storm but sometimes you have no choice. I am sure the gentleman in this video did not think getting struck by lightning was going to be part of his day. It was and the results are simply amazing!

So how do folks like you and I keep from getting zapped when we have to walk out to our car or cross a parking lot in a thunderstorm. Obviously, the safest bet is to just wait for the lightning to move away from the area. If you think you can't wait just picture yourself in this guys shoes, I bet you can change your mind.
