    Don't be the tallest conductor. A couple of months ago I dropped down twenty feet from the ridge line above Issues Clough on Black Hill until the storm had blown over. Sometimes its worth sacrificing time for safety. Best to arrive late than in a box!

    Never comment on its likelihood as that would be tempting fate. If you avoid this, you are guaranteed never to be struck.
