You Should Never Shower Or Do Dishes During A Thunderstorm


You know when it's thundering maybe during a monsoon here in Arizona? Apparently that is a very bad time to decide to take a shower or to do a load of dishes. 

“Certainly showers would be dangerous, it would be dangerous to be washing your hands or washing dishes. Just avoid those any time you can hear thunder.” said  John Jensenius, a lightning safety specialist for the National Weather Service (NWS).

“Water can conduct electricity as well. We see that on the outside where lightning strikes something and if there are puddles around, it can easily electrocute somebody nearby the puddle."

“When a house is built, it should be built so that when your electricity comes in, it's grounded to your house,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said. “If your house is grounded to separate rods that are basically stuck down into the ground, then that's a bit safer because nothing is attached to the plumbing.”

To find out whether your home’s electrical system is grounded to the plumbing system or not, contact an electrician.

How interesting is this?! So apparently it you can get electrocuted by water during a thunderstorm! It is just not worth the risk!
