I hope he doesn't mind but I thought his email was so funny....it's from my dad. I have been having some lightning fears lately (don't ask).
In Houston every square mile has 10 - 20 lightning strikes per year. No particular area in Houston has more over an extended period.
Texas averages 4 deaths by lightning a year - Houston less than 1.
You are 84% more likely to be struck by lightning if you are male - keep Nathan and Price indoors.
