    Got struck by lightning today

    what an electrifying experience

    We were on the beach in Pensacola about to watch the blue angels air show when this severe storm showed up out of nowhwere. Horrible ligtening and thunder cracking everywhere. I had my wife and kids huddled under an umbrella i bought at the beach store. The wind was real bad so i had to hold the metal pole of the umbrella to keep it from blowing over. BIG MISTAKE!!

    The ligtning hit me in the side of the head. Felt like it got me several times as i heard ZAP ZAP ZAP and it felt like someone punching me in the head. I blacked out for about 30 seconds. Once i came to i told Carey and the boys to just leave everything there and we ran for cover. My phone that was in my pocket won't even work now. The lightning got it too. TJ and his family was with us and his daughter felt a "tinge" of it as did Carey. We are all okay though.

    There were others that got hit too as we saw 3 abulances carrying people away from the scene. What a crazy day!
