Another lightning strike

There was another direct hit from a lightning strike at Copperleaf yesterday. This time, our irrigation system antenna was hit causing it to explode into hundreds of pieces. Fortunately no one was injured although many of our employees, including me, were a little shaken. I was in my office at the time when the lightning hit which is only 8 feet, and a thin piece of glass, away from the antenna. The power of the lightning unfortunately caused our irrigation communication repeater, or base station, to be damaged as well. Toro, our irrigation company has sent a new base station overnight and with a new antenna being installed today, irrigation will once again be able to take place.
