Keeping an Eye on the Summer Sky

Hay Seed and City Slicker know that thunderstorms can occur in all 50 states. But they heard there is one state with the largest number of storm days per year (85-100). In 2022, this state had 285 lightning strikes per square mile. According to the National Weather Service, more people die from lightning strikes in this state every year than in any other state. 

As Hay Seed and City Slicker prepare for vacation, they want to know where this “lightning capital” of the USA is located. You can help them out and also have a chance to win a $25 A mazon email gift card by doing the following: 

1. Find and identify this stormy state hidden in this magazine, giving the page number. 

2. Have you ever visited this state? 

3. How will you “play it safe” during outdoor activities this summer?
