  8. One of the scariest experiences in my life,i will have a date for it somewhere but not at the moment.Somewhere in the early 1990s I was walking home from the farm I worked at across a large field at 380metres ,it was dark and just started raining.After only a short distance it was very heavy rain then with no warning a very loud bang and instantaneous daylight and back to total darkness,scared the life out of me.I knew by that the storm was right on top of me,i should have gone back to the farm but persisted.Maybe 30 seconds later it happened again,i hit the ground and by this time the rain was torrential.I stayed where I was and moments later it happened again.I decided to run for it then hit the ground again before the next bang and flash.Strange things happen in your mind in times like this and I was convinced there was someone else in that field in those split seconds of light.I repeated this a couple more times until I came across a wall where I had a breather and somehow felt safe,the times between the lightening grew a little and I jumped over the wall and over the brow of the hill,hitting the ground in anticipation of a strike,once a little lower down the hill I ran the rest of the way home.This was only a couple of hundred yards away from where my Grandad was struck by lightening.
