Well, god forbid there be a thread where someone didn't chime in to remind us all that lightning is powerful. As if one is foolish to install surge suppressors or something. Since seat belts don't do diddly if you slam into a bridge abutment at 75 MPH, I guess I won't bother wearing them anymore.

This has nothing to do with inside your house....

If a lighting hits your ground, outside.. It's sole purpose is to reach earth ground and ground out ( Release it's energy)

However if there is a piece of copper in the ground, it will cling to it. Thus traveling through out the entire sprinkler system.. frying everything
