We had an eventful afternoon around here. The kids and I were outside working on shucking about 100 ears of corn that our friends gave us when a storm started to blow in. For some reason Kenzie, Mallory and Dallin decided to don goggles, capes and magic wands and play Wizards in the backyard (don't ask me where they think of these things.)
Right after they performed this magic spell the lightning and thunder began (coincidence? I'm not so sure!)
We were in the house when we heard a loud bang that shook the house. Kenzie was near a window in the front of the house and said the lightning lit up the whole sky. A few minutes later we heard sirens and Kenzie looked out and saw smoke coming from the roof of the neighbor's detached garage.
1. I'm glad it was only their garage and not their house
2. I'm really glad it wasn't our house and
3. Why couldn't the lightning have hit the calcium plant behind us? I wouldn't have even called the fire dept. on that one (just let it burn).
