“My Saliva Was Sizzling”

That’s how Andy Kula describes nearly being struck by lightning. It could happen to you, too:

Alabama ranks in the top ten states for the number of lightning deaths from 1995 to 2004. That’s because the state’s weather patterns create frequent thunderstorms that produce lightning and the warm climate encourages frequent outdoor activity, Kula said. The Gulf Coast is the second most lightning-prone area of the country, behind central Florida.

Maybe my dog isn’t so dumb after all.
