Default How's this for the right place at the wrong time

http://www.ocala.com/article/20130520/ARTICLES/130529965/1412?Title=Man-28-killed-by-falling-tree-during-thunderstorm

About eight blocks from my house...one street from my range I shoot at.

That's tragic. Makes me feel kind of stupid for griping about getting older.

On the flip side of that coin, someone in Zephyrhills picks the right Powerball numbers to the tune of $590 MILLION. In both cases, what are the odds? Luck runs both ways brother, good and bad.
I was in a tornado once. The thing hopscotched and hit every third house. (or so) The owners with houses left intact all said, "Thank God." The owners that got hit asked, "Why me?"
Life's a crapshoot.

Sure is....It just seems so ironic the young fellow was trying to be responsible and safe and waiting for the storm to subside. You are here one second....gone the next And I feel bad for this guy and his family and happy for the Powerball winner....
