Funny you bring up welding..
I was welding one night under my carport,, Very clear night,, Well my next door neighbour was take a bath,, And his window was not to far from me... He came over after getting done and said... MAN!!!! you scaird the H*** out of me,,
I said. WHY !!!!!
He said I was getting out the tub and saw some lightning coming through the bathroom window and I went ask my wife... Man !!!! THE WEATHER MUST BE GETTING BAD OUTSIDE,, He said she looked at him like he was crazy or something,,,
She said... IT'S CLEAR OUTSIDE,, What's wrong with you,, He said,, I saw lightning coming from the window,,,
So he walked to the FRONT door and saw it was very clear,, He then came running around the house and saw me welding !!!!
And said you had me losing my mind... I said I do that sometimes to people.. It's OK...
