Brandon Smith (Redwoodtwig)
We haven't had very many storms or much rainfall this year, and only a couple of thunderstorms.
This strike made me jump, but I didn't find where it had hit until several days later.
It peeled off strips of bark quite a ways down the trunk. The longest piece I found was only a few feet long -- but very neatly sliced off.
