With our many long PMs back and forth, my wife thinks Dale and I are having an affair. And although the idea is tempting, our discussions are STRICTLY tears.
And I came up with this idiotic notion today:
Based on where we live, is there any logic to installing some sort of lightning rod on our TDs? I don't know how many of you have witnessed major thunderstorms, been stuck out somewhere when one hits, but it is truly terrifying, and it happens OFTEN in Florida from spring through fall. (Remember the blimp that almost fell on my house!?)
It's not like a bolt hits "way over there." The bolts hit like 20 FEET over there. And there are a lot of them.
For some reason, in the middle of the state, like Disney, all of the buildings have rods on them. Down by me in South Florida, no.
I know there are issues like your tires are rubber, therefore in a ground hit, you're insulated. But your stabilizers aren't, and what if the TD itself is hit?
Or is this all just totally idiotic and should I just go back to shopping for galley Formica?
Here we go again!
