Rick that storm had a lot of lightning with it.

You know when your building gets struck, you see the flash and here the boom at the same time your hair stands on end. Glad to hear there's no damage. I just had to pull my pepper plants up to mend.

    Chip, re: lightning strikes, years ago I was upstairs in my townhouse which is located in the center of the bldg.  Lightning struck the TV antenna located just above my unit (less than 10 feet from where I was standing).  It traveled through all of the electrical conduit and screwed up anything that was plugged into an outlet without a surge protector.  Nothing was permanently damaged, just had to unplug and plug everything back in.  Lightning scares the hell out of me.

    OK numbers...lot of close calls yesterday.  Let's get a winner today.

    Slap will be - 8 -

    No midday plays, but for evening I'm going with 408-840.  If something else comes up after midday, I'll post it later.

    Good luck everyone!

        Brdman, glad to hear you and the camper were OK.  Rain was going sideways that night.  We had 70 MPH winds in our neighborhood.  Lost a few trees too....luckily not 40!  Lot of mulch production.

        OK, I have a late addition for tonight....179

        Several hits on the IL prediction board for midday today...I noticed Lucky and mslgr (sp?) had box hits and Pavlichek (sp?) had a STRAIGHT with the 691.  Sorry if I missed anyone else.

        See ya'll later!
