Sunday AM 9/9/12 Lightning Strike?!
« on: September 10, 2012, 01:18:42 PM »
I was riding Sunday AM around 9am when the rains came.  On the double track back from North Creek, lightning cracked literally above my head.  Today, another person I know who was riding that day with us said that a guy got struck by lightning...has anyone heard this officially?  And if so, is he/she ok?

Please advise.

I don't think anyone got hit, but we were heading back from the Rockgarden area and we seen a huge lightning strike about 100-200' from us and shortly came up on another rider right after that was sitting there who was all spoked over it cause it struck even closer to him... Maybe that's why people are saying someone was hit by it??  :o

"Dude saw lightning" quickly turns into "dude almost got struck" into "dude got struck" into "dude got struck and has super human powers".

I was under that loud crack....apparently a girl I know rode past him and he was on the ground shaking and twitching and his bike was off to the side....she didn't stop, so I guess either she's a bitch or he wasn't actually struck by lightning.

HAHA, yeah she was a SCARED BITCH...LMAO Cause we stopped and asked if everything was OK and he said he was spooked from the lightning strike and was trying to get to lower ground, and that's when I told him, it doesn't really matter how much lower the ground your on is with all these huge trees your sitting under!! LOL
