    Came back up to the farm and went for a walk on one of the trails. I found a 100’ chestnut oak that has apparently been struck by lightning.

    I noticed all the strips of bark on the ground first. It was in different widths from 4” to 1/2” and various lengths. It was out as far as maybe 30’ from the tree.

    I then saw the tree. Bark was stripped off all the way to the top on just one side and there is a 3/4” wide groove, about 1/2” deep, straight as a string all the way up as far as I can see.

    This happened over the last few days as I was at this spot Sunday morning before I went back to finish up some jobs at “home”.

    Pretty amazing.
