"Fan Don Lewis, who took cover in a portable toilet"

What a choice, hide in in a smelly and disgusting port-a-john OR take your chances outside in a thunder storm.

(My grandfather's cesspool company, owned over 500 "portable toilets" and 34 pump trucks, Thankfully after he died my family's company sold the entire nauseating division to a guy from South Carolina)

Cut down on salt consumption, you'll be less conductive and have lower blood pressure.
