Look here Kiddo, you belong among friends who care. Are you saying we don't care? Well, I don't care, so there. You belong here just like me. We are all misfits in a world not our own, waiting to go Home, and here in our little island of misfit toys is just as good a place to wait as any.
Besides, who else is going to pick on me when I make fun of everyone.
Praying for you as I rest, Kiddo.

I would never say I am normal (mainly because I wont insult myself THAT much), lets just say I am just your average dog that thinks he is a person that pretends to write but isn't any good at it.
The past makes us what we are, and mine has been rather troubled, and now I am retired from that and existing moment to moment in a cozy little world of my own. It's a nice place, though it doesn't have much of a view out the window, the padding on the wall really does help. And no matter what they tell you, tinfoil is VERY useful.
So is duck tape.
Shann It could be a form of Ball Lightning as well. Sometimes the air itself flashes along the electrical current in lighting, causing it to curl in on itself, then ignite again, but in a spinning ball instead of the line or current we normally see in lightning. It is an oddity but it does happen a lot.
believe that it occurs when the air becomes superheated by the lightning and then constricts the electrical flow, bending it back against itself instead of splitting or "forking" as normal. (This all in a fraction of a second it takes to form the lightning.) It then continues the curve until a ball forms (size varying from a pea to a basket ball) and splits off from the lightning to flow freely, if erratically, through the air until it explode. Though lightning itself only last a few seconds, ball lightning has been seen to last several minutes and break apart in a very colorful, and dangerous display.
Some, myself included, feel it is a totally separate phenomenon, as ball lightning has formed below the cloud cover. AND it can draw more electricity from the air itself without the presence of larger water molecules needed to form normal lightning within the storm cell. More akin to the hot air flashes that happen when no clouds are present.
Anyway, I have seen the same thing before and yes, they can be scary.. and way cool to watch.
