About 40 million lightning strikes hit the ground in the United States each year. But the odds of being struck by lightning in a given year are less than one in a million, and almost 90% of all lightning strike victims survive.

Being 1 in a million tho…

Lightning strikes are up 200% this year over last year. Why isn't Lori doing anything about this?!

Not sure if it falls under the rational or irrational category when it comes to fears but being struck by lightning is waaaay up there for me on my list.
