Martha Stewart’s Farm Gets Hit by Lightning — Twice!

Martha Stewart today said on her blog that lightning yesterday struck two trees on her Bedford farm. She said in recent months her farm has been a frequent target for lightning.

I love when she says “I’m waiting to hear the assessment from my arborist.” That’s when you know you got money, when you can afford an arborist. Sure Jay-Z owns a bunch of businesses and part of an NBA sports team, but can he say that he has an arborist? Didn’t think so.

Blogs come a dime a dozen these days and its hard to find good ones worth reading regularly. But Martha’s blog is always entertaining.
