Love the rain, thunder and lightning storms. As an uniformed kid, I used to sit on my grandmothers screened porch in the rocking chair and watched the lightning light up the sky.. I liked feeling the mist from the rain coming thru the screen on my face

Saw a cow hit by lightning when I was a kid. It fell over like it was made of wood.

I was about 9yrs. old we lived one door from the Ohio Canal and while I was fishing it started to storm I started running home lighting hit the telephone I looked up and saw sparks the next thing I remembered was being on my porch. The second time I at my Grandparents house which was in the mountains of N.C. it was a beautiful sunny day big white clouds a bolt of lightning went between my cousin going then through the wiring into the kitchen lightbulb a loud boom and continued to bring the hosing going to my Grandpa’s springhouse. True story what makes lighting do that when there isn’t a storm without any warning?

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
