Not a sign as such, but I saw something that made me grin written on the back of a steeplejack's van; apart from repairing steeples and other high up things, they are also 'lightning conductors'... I wondered whether they had to be replaced after each storm; 'get another one Fred; this one's melted!'

I had visions of them standing on a roof somewhere with a baton in hand orchestrating the lightning strikes and sounds.

I could work for them!  I'm the only person I know who has been struck by lightning three times; I'm so grateful for cordless phones these days, as I seem to make the mistake of of being rained off outside work and thinking "ooh, I'll just phone so-and-so" and then being the bit that connects the lightning from the telegraph pole to the ground. ::)

I daren't go outside in a storm, as I know what it's like being hit indoors in a very minor way. :-[
