This thunderstorm just missed the
far end of the lake. Before the lightning got too close, we
decided to play it safe and head in to take shelter until the
storm was a safe distance away. Besides the fact that lightning
can travel great distances, wind can make this lake very dangerous
without any warning. Whenever a storm is approaching, it's best
to get off the water and take shelter as quickly as possible.
Waiting until the last second can be a fatal mistake. 3/20/2003
