You know when the lifeguards tell you to leave the beach because of bad weather?
Yeah, you should probably listen, as a video from Cape May shows.
The video, released by the City of Cape May, was recorded around 5 p.m. Sunday by a camera on the beach-side portion of the Cape May Convention Center, according to CBS3. As you can see below, a bright bolt of lightning strikes a lifeguard stand,
The Facebook account for the coffee shop Coffee Tyme (which is quite good, if you're ever visiting Exit 0) posted a photo and video of the aftermath. The lifeguard stand was visibly torched after being struck.
So, once again, it's always a good idea to head back to the house when the weather gets dicey. That's what board games and booze are for.
