I am calling you on this.
What is a few ... one, two, five, more than five?
How do you know that these bases were cracked from lightning strikes and
not from some other action?  Please explain.
Did you see it happen?  Did someone else see it happen?  Explain the
details for arriving at the conclusion that lightning caused the crack.
How did you know that there were just J bolts?

Don't go into hiding again when pressed for details.  Your credibility
is on shaky ground.

I have seen a few concrete bases cracked from lightning strikes. These
all where there was no ground system attached to the tower at all. Just
tower attached to the J bolts in the concrete. I can't recall seeing one
cracked where there was a ground system attached.
