    Lightning came through a kitchen ceiling light fixture and struck a woman in the chest, standing under it, while holding a pan.

    Her young son, called 911 and she is fine.

    and if She's mad at you.

    15A x 100 ohms (a soapy, wet, body) = 1500v and lightning is more than 1500v. Yeah, the breaker will trip. . .

    With that Texas kitchen strike, She was probably aiming at someone else [whose name rhymes with "tush"?].
