Splish splash I was taking a bath….
Hopefully there wasn’t lightning outside. When I was little my parents would always tell me to hold off from taking a shower until the thunderstorm passed. Turns out my parents knew more about weather than I did!
You may be familiar with the phrase “when thunder roars, go indoors” but thunderstorms can still pose a threat even if you are inside.
It is dangerous to take a shower or a bath during a thunderstorm. On average, 10-20 people get struck by lightning while bathing, using facuets or handling an appliance during a storm.
Metal plumbing and the water inside are excellent conductors of electricty. So feel free to use this lesson to get out of doing the dishes on the next stormy night.
