. . . Living on a mountain in southwest Virginia...

Yesterday, our neighbor told us we had a tree struck by lightning on the back part of our land. He said he had never seen anything like it. We agreed. The bark was stripped completely off the yellow poplar tree. Large slabs of the tree were everywhere.
This is the top of the tree which landed about 30 feet away. At first, I thought it was another tree because it sat vertically in the ground.
