    That's why you have lightning rods... And in some parts of Texas, houses like that are a lot more common than down here along the Gulf Coast.

    I'm well aware of lightning rods, but have never been in a house which had them.
    Do you have lightning rods on your house?

    I don't have them on my house. It's a one story house with trees that are higher than it and the neighboring houses are 2-story. A college buddy of mine who lives up north of Dallas bought a house back in the 1990s, IIRC, and it has lightning rods on it. They get more of those thunderstorms from the Midwest coming down, I suspect. When I lived in North Louisiana, people didn't tend to have lightning rods, they had tall *pine trees*. Those things sure do seem to attract the lightning. :) When your house is surrounded by 70-90 ft pine trees, it probably isn't going to make a difference if you put lightning rods on your house since the pine trees are more likely to get struck first.

    For an apartment just grab a few nest cams. Easy to set up and fine for your situation. Plus the app is very easy to set up and use.
