Post storm excitement in Historical Downtown Winter Garden

As I was driving down Plant Street tonight I saw a bunch of flashing red lights and then saw this sight on South Main Street. The Winter Garden Fire Department ladder truck was extended and 2 fire fighters were gathered on a small 2nd story balcony. Rumor has it that someone said the building took a direct hit from lightning during tonight’s storms (4/29/14).

Having witnessed a neighbor’s home burn after a direct lightning hit a couple years ago, I fully appreciate the fact that the destructive power of a lightning bolt may not show it’s flaming self for hours after it hit.

Me and my brother David getting ready to trick or treat in either 1970 or 1971. This is when we still lived on Ponca Trail in Maitland, before we moved on up to Lake Maitland in 1972. #lepowphoto #maitland #halloween #nationalsiblingday #brother
