Foudre en boule

My Grandmother once told me that as a child, when she used to stay in the countryside with her uncle and there was lightning, it was quite frequent that the thunder would come through the fire hole. The thunder ball would then go around the room and find the nearest exit. My Grandmother’s advice: “Stay very still and it won’t hit you”. Of course I could never be sure she was telling the truth until I saw Tintin:

Another advice my Grandmother gave me about thunderstorms is: “In case you’re walking outside and there is lightning, wear nothing but a silk scarf and you’ll be safe.” If you decide to try it, send me a picture 😉
