Lightning kills man beneath cloudless sky

Sounds like God's pissed.

With no rain or even clouds to warn him of the danger, death came literally out of the blue Thursday to a self-employed landscaper. The killer was a powerful bolt of lightning that cracked through perfectly clear skies.

So, uh, where'd it come from then?

David Canales, 41, of West Miami-Dade, was on the job at a Pinecrest home when the bolt hit. It first seared a tree, then traveled and struck Canales, standing nearby.

New lightning? We're all going to die.

Experts said Canales was killed by a weather phenomenon fittingly called a ''bolt from the blue'' or ''dry lightning'' because it falls from clear, blue skies. He was pronounced dead at South Miami Hospital.

That sucks. Talk about bad fucking luck.

Canales is the latest victim of one of Florida's least enviable honors: It's the country's lightning capital. Five of the 47 people killed by lightning across the country last year were in Florida.

It's also the home of Disneyworld. Coincidence? I think not.

The fair-weather bolts pack a bigger, deadlier punch and form differently.

I'm never going outside again.
