sorry if this is a silly question I am just interested in others' thoughts on this. I am working through a fear of lightining. It is a big thing for me. I am trying to understand how it works so as to be less afraid, reading about it and discussing it at length with dh to try to figure out how I am actually pretty safe in my house during a lightning storm.
so on another note, I am looking to get a swingset and maybe abackyard climber for almost 2 yr old ds.
without thinking about the connection yesterday I ordered a very simple inexpensive metal swing set and a metal dome climber. Last night I was thinking about it and did a tiny bit of internet research and realized that for someone like me, who is highly aware of trying to feel safe in a lightning storm, having 2 metal play structures in my somewhat open yard may actually attract lightning to the yard! I cancelled the order.
Now I am thinking about it and wondering what you think? I know millions of people have metal play sets in their yards and are fine. but realistically there is a connection between having metal in the yard and attracting lightnin, right? Just wondering as even the most basic wooden set is expensive- perhaps I will look into used wooden sets. Thoughts?
