Lightning Strike!

The pigeon wasn't the only thing hit by the lightning.
Look at this!
The lightning hit the tree in our back yard.
You can see where it burned the branch!
And then the branch fell on our back porch.
Our girl chopped off the big broken branch.
You can see more burn marks on the tree.
Next time there is lightning, we are going to hide under the bed!
We don't want to get burned like the tree and the pigeon!

This is what our back porch looked like after the girl chopped down the broken branch.

And here's the branch piled up in our back yard.
I'm checking to see if the branches would be fun to climb.
Maybe I can see over the fence....
or even take myself on walks through the neighborhood.What kind of branches are these?
They are not fun to climb on at all!

Look at the sharp thorns they have!
I even poked my nose sniffing them.
I guess I won't climb them afterall!

Wow, your Mom sure was efficient, cutting that tree up quickly! Tell her that all-in-all, it probably wasn't too bad, the whole ordeal... because it could have been worse! The tree could have caught fire! Thank goodness it didn't. Glad you all are okay.

Hi Blu and Comet,
Don't worry, that tree will be safe cos 'lightning never strike the same place twice'!
Ohh but that poor pigeon..

Oh my! What bad bad lightnings there was! Sooo dangerous. I think it's a good idea to hide in your bomb shelter the next time another one comes around...

Scary, scary. I am so glad that you two and your girl are alright. During the next storm, dig a big hole and hide in it.
