  • Lightning hits Aurora, Colorado home overnight, [damaging] woman's living room.

    "The home's grounding rod, where the lightning should have exited, was stolen before the strike."

    7NEWS - Lightning hits Aurora home, destroying woman's living room - Local Story

    How does one pull an 8 ft. ground rod?
    I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.
    It ain't just soot, it's paydirt.

    Chuck them in a right ange drill and spin 'em right out of the ground... I wasn't in Colorado that night by the way.

      That would work?
      My idea was vicegrips clamped onto the ground rod and a crowbar on a wood block.
      Then reclamp the vicegrips lower.

        I dont think it would have mattered much whether it was there or not, in the long run.

        ... it was plumbed by Ray Charles and his helper Stevie Wonder

          Correct. The ground rod was likely totally irrelevent.
          Wonder what all was destroyed - if anything else.
