Got off work about 9pm last night, and started the 10 mi ride home.. There were some UGLY low clouds above, but it wasnt raining or anything.. Actually felt really dry, more dry than usual.. Shouldve been my first warning, but there were NO birds or insects or ANYTHING making any noise at all.. Totally silent..
I was on the highway, about 70 MPH, enjoying the cool night, when I started to feel.. weird.. (I know now that I was feeling static.) It felt kinda like when you put on clothes out of the dryer, when you forgot to put a dryer sheet in.
Then *KABAMMMMMM!!!!*. Freaking HUGE purple lightning bolt hits the light pole about 10 car lengths in front of me.. The damn thing DESTROYED my night vision, I couldnt see shiat! My ears were ringing so loud, I couldnt hear my bike, the cars around me, or see any of the cars because I was completely blind.. I just had to gently get on the brakes, and drift towards the shoulder (I was in the far left lane), and just hoped to hell I wouldnt get hit.. Once I heard the gravel on the shoulder, I stopped, got the hell off my bike, and sat in the median ( I didnt want to take the chance of getting hit).. Few min later, my vision cleared enough to see (still couldnt hear anything), and there were cars all over the highway, stopped in every direction.. People blinking, looking stupid (like me)....

Needless to say, I left the bike home today.. :2eek

Glad your ok. I had that happen to me when I was driving in the cage. I was completly binded and was in the middle lane. I didnt know what to do I slowed down. lucky for me everyone else did as well. Very scary time. Now I have my cell phone set up with geting weather warning text to my phone so I know when something bad could happen.
