  11. Lightning strikes car: This is a video of lightning striking our car antenna as we were headed home in the Houston area during a fantastic lightning storm in August 2005. I had my camera handy from a dinner with an out of state relative. Lightning hit us as we were exiting US 290 in our town of Waller and our car rolled to a stop. It killed the electrical system, but otherwise there were no burn marks. The only signs were a melted antenna and a flat tire. We were scared but glad to survive it!
