Stories, myths, and legends are often based on a real-life incidents, and therefore I found this following story very interesting. However, it should be noted that the “cedar” tree is really of the Juniper family as there are no true cedars in the United States.
Here’s the story:
Author Grinnell included this footnote: “A cedar is never struck by lightning.”
Does anyone know if it’s true that lightning never strikes a cedar tree?
