Call Me Sparky

Alberta is dry. As the weather gets cooler I have become a static electric conduit in a big way. I make cracking, sparking noises with my fingers all the time. I am loud. It kind of hurts. My hair crackles. I sizzle.....and not in the sexy way.

My conduit proficiency is not limited to Alberta. I am also very effective in Montana, which I found out yesterday when I spent the day shopping in Great Falls with a couple of friends. I snap, crackle, and pop. My shopping buddies don't.

Today I have been able to ease off the zapping. We had a little rain and that seems to have curtailed things. But if anyone has any ideas on how to reign in my super power I would be happy to hear about it.
