    That one is dead, standing. It burned off all the growing part of the tree.

    Seen them blown to smithereens before. Never seen one debarked.

      I was driving and one was hit about 100 yards ahead. Shit was still coming down after I got up to it. The power of lightning is just amazing.

    I saw a big ol Hemlock that had been hit by lightening. Right from the top to the ground it looked like a perfect candy cane stripe. The stripe was maybe ten inches wide and four or five inches deep. A barber pole is what it reminded me of.

    I’ve got a white oak near my driveway that looks similar. One moment a gentle spring rain and bam… nekkid as hell.
