Here's today's video. I can't bear to watch.

*TRAGEDY ON BEAVER LAKE: The Weather Channel reports that a man killed by a lighting strike on Beaver Lake is the seventh lightning-related fatality in the U.S. of 2015. In a typical year, about 33 Americans are killed by lightning, says NOAA. According to 40/29, the man was 22-year-old Connor Clayman of Springfield, Mo, who was fishing in a boat with his wife and a guide; the article also notes that the death is the fourth of the year for Beaver Lake, leading to the predictable conclusion from several commenters on the story: That lake is cursed.
