Struck by Lightning

Jason Martin, technical director at Ars Technica:

“I spent the rest of the day in a state of foggy confusion and realized that I may have developed a bona fide new phobia. As more thunderstorms rolled into the area last night, I gathered groggy children to the center-most area of the house and created a makeshift pillow raft to sleep on. I even woke a sleeping toddler; only a madman does this.”

This is precisely why I hate sleeping near windows when a major thunderstorm is going on at night. Freaks me out.
