If it was thunder and lightening would you have a bath or shower as usual or even wash your hands under the tap?

So I’m sat here having a debate with my husband and he thinks I’m being weird.

If it was thunder and lightening would you have a bath or shower as usual or even wash your hands under the tap?

It’s something I’ve never ever done if we’ve a storm but he wouldn’t think twice about it..

I'm literally in shock. I have never even thought about this but from now on no, I wouldn't 😂😂 I just thought you were safe from lightening if you were inside your house.

I'm with your hubby.... I've never heard of anyone being struck by lightning whilst showering, bathing or washing their hands or dishes

No showers or baths in a thunder storm. It’s been ingrained in me from being small. I would put my phone down too. I am usually outside watching which is probably more of a risk

I wouldn't do any of that or stand near a window or open door. I wouldn't even use a cordless phone or a mobile phone. My fear comes from having a direct hit on our house when I was younger and seeing the light switches blow up inc anything plugged in to them... scary times

We used to live in Central Florida…lightening there was crazy. We were always told not to shower and try keep away from taps in a severe storm as plumbing can conduct a strike. HOWEVER storms here are seldom that severe AND most plumbing pipes are plastic now so the risk is minimal at best.

My mum always made us unplug the TV, back in the days when there was an aerial on your chimney, but she never said anything about water

Nope and i wouldn't be doing anything else either so no prepping food, no toilet visit..literally nothing! Just sat there not moving til its stopped

I don't understand why you wouldn't do those things? What has a storm got to do with it?

My great aunt used to tell me that if you went out in the rain “on your ladies days” you’d get a brain tumour 🤷‍♀️ didn’t buy into that one either!
