You missed!

Things learned during my commute number 2,345,208, volume 47, part 2, the sequel:

When riding in an incredibly intense thunderstorm, and lightning strikes so close by that the big bike stutters in the instant I hear the *snap* and feel the heat from the strike…and the power comes back in the next microsecond along with a VISIBLE shock-wave and stunning concussion so powerful it is difficult to identify it as thunder…well after that, it is necessary (if somewhat politically incorrect) to shake your fist at the sky, laugh hysterically, and scream, “You missed!”

In other news…my bike got washed yesterday.
