BRKG Washington, DC: 4 struck by lightning near White House - Update: 3 dead.


TB Fanatic
OK, but my mother was hit twice by lightning coming in a window.


Damm! Twice? Double Damm!

My grandmother had it come in through the glass window also but bolt jumped to the telephone.
Back then the phones were basically made of Bakelite, a rather breakable type of early plastic.
It probably shattered into hundreds of pieces.
