Hello Gary,

Thanks for your email and so sorry for the delay in responding.

I do understand your concerns for the large red circles. It's a safety factor. The problem is one can't zoom in on the map. But we are working on that! We hope to have a geospatial map which one can zoom in to a specific location for next season. The danger circles will then be a more appropriate size and reflect the danger of lightning in the area. This will include not only direct strike but also ground current, side flash and upper leaders. http://www.ec.gc.ca/foudre-lightning/default.asp?lang=En&n=D401EB9A-1

Researchers have found that the next lightning strike will occur within 10 km and within about 5 to 10 minutes of the initial strike. A web map would reduce the size of the danger circles to 10 km.

We are trying to promote lightning safety. I'm afraid too many people ( my colleagues too) think we can dance around the lightning strikes. There was a man mowing his lawn in Ontario. He only had 4 more passes with his push mower before he was finished mowing his lawn. Unfortunately lightning struck and killed him. This is our first and hopefully only lightning death this year.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

There is no shortage of threads on THAT subject, some of them closed. "Quite a while" is relative: it happened during this calendar year, although it has been a number of months now.

Thunderboomers! It was sunny when I parked my car and went to yoga followed by a 15-minute meditation, so I left the car windows down an inch due to heat and humidity. Then, during meditation, the pouring began! It was hard to meditate on anything other than how wet the inside of my car might be getting, but after a few minutes I calmed down. When I got to the car, it wasn't too bad. It was sheltered under a tree (one of many, so I wasn't worried about being struck by lightning), and the raindrops seemed to be falling straight down.

When I went to post this, I discovered I couldn't because I wasn't logged in! It was startling to see a big red circle with a diagonal slash over this box. So that's what non-members see! I notice that awe and etta are gone and have been replaced by sonny. I wonder if that's why. Just curious!

Aah, the poor dog. The pet dog of my childhood, a wonderful beagle-hound mix, was gun-shy, as well as explosion- and thunder-shy.
Poor baby, she would shake like the proverbial leaf during a thunderstorm. And she had to be touching her fellow humans at that point, until the bad noises went away. Walk from one room to the next, and she was UNDER your feet, between your legs, DON'T LEAVE MEEEE.
We didn't know, in those days, about "thundershirts" -- she was a candidate for such, if ever a dog was. I hope, on her side of the Rainbow Bridge, she is in the company of some fearless wee terriers, the sort who make joyful barking noises when it thunders -- OOOH, let me out so I can chase the thunder and catch it!

Last night 2nd August we had a huge thunderstorm right above our wee town in the small hours of the morning- - -everyone was woken by ginormous flashes then forked lightning, and immediately a huge house-shaking thunderclap

There was a torrential downpour too - but the storm-   the storm seemed to be fixed right above us for a looong time!

My dog leapt onto the bed and straight under the duvet----the thunder and lightning just would not move away or diminish!

I truly can't imagine what it would like to live in a climate which gets several feet of snow each winter. I feel the cold, but I don't mind winter - you can always add another layer or two but in summer there are limits as to what can be removed, in public at least - however compared to some parts of the world our winters are quite mild.

The two largest stages are indoors at the New Bedford Whaling Museum and the Zeiterion Theater, the others, except for the smallest one, are under tents.
