Think about it? Does this make any sense? I just watched a segment moments ago (July 14, 2010) where an installer showed Kevin O'Connor how to attach a lighting strike ground from the HD antenna mounted to the chimney flue down to the homeowner's gas line at the meter. Perhaps Tommy and Wild-E-Coyote should be called in to build a shed around the meter so a few powder kegs could also be stored- now that would ensure complete annihilation!
A word to the wise- seek out the water supply line or stake a rod into the ground (away from the gas supply).
