Lightening!



BIG storm rolled through NOLA late yesterday afternoon.

Lightening struck the priory's server. . .
and nearly caused me to keel over with a heart attack!

So, no internet access for a couple of days.

    The English words lightening and lightning are only one letter apart in spelling and pronunciation, but worlds apart in meaning. The lightning bolt of comprehension you get after reading this lesson will start lightening your confusion.

    Lightening also refers to the process of making something lighter in weight. Lightening is the opposite of making something heavier.

    1. Thanks. I misspelled a word. I didn't forget the difference btw an electrical discharge during a storm and the act of reducing something's weight.
