Killer Lightning Strikes

I never was much afraid of lightning until I moved to Florida and experienced my first couple of afternoon summer thunderstorms (which seem more intense on the Gulf Coast for some reason). Now I really don't like to be outside when the sky is rumbling. Why? Kevin Deutsch of the Palm Beach Post does a terrific job of answering that question, right down to the spitting yellow sparks.
