If lightning is the anger of the gods, then the gods are concerned mostly about trees. -Lao Tzu

We had two lightning strikes(that we know for sure) that actually touched ground on golf course property last Saturday night. The first  strike was in the middle of the second half of #5 fairway, causing damage to our rainbird controller and frying 8 sprinkler head solenoids. The second strike hit a tree on the pond on #14. That strike actually sent tree bark debris 20-30 yards. 

A storm a brewing.......
