I'm not sure if I should call this irony or coincidence, but the historic Talcott-Olson home in Rockton got struck by lightning this week, which just so happens to be National Lightning Safety Awareness Week.

WIFR reports that Linda and Jay Eaton's home was struck by lightning on Tuesday, June 25 and that this freak occurrence provides perfect proof that anything above ground is vulnerable to a lightning strike.

I now know the phrase I will be teaching my kids when I get home today, when it roars, go indoors!
