Something tells me this guy’s nickname wasn’t “Lucky.”
With no rain or even clouds to warn him of the danger, death came literally out of the blue Thursday to a self-employed landscaper. The killer was a powerful bolt of lightning that cracked through perfectly clear skies.
David Canales, 41, of West Miami-Dade, was on the job at a Pinecrest home when the bolt hit. It first seared a tree, then traveled and struck Canales, standing nearby.
Experts said Canales was killed by a weather phenomenon fittingly called a ”bolt from the blue” or ”dry lightning” because it falls from clear, blue skies. He was pronounced dead at South Miami Hospital. (H/T – Miami Herald)
Okay, people, do y’all hear that? Maybe next time you won’t doubt the existence of God, abolish the Ten Commandments from public buildings, or have abortions like they’re going out of style. (Ya know, you don’t get a free dinner at Stuckey’s with every murdered fetus!) Otherwise, who knows? Maybe God will send a bolt of lightning your way . . . or worse!
Yeah, I know: I’m going to Hell.
