             abstract = "The physical mechanism of lightning attachment to grounded 
                         structures is one of the most important issues in lightning 
                         physics research, and it is the basis for the design of the 
                         lightning protection systems. Most of what is known about the 
                         attachment process comes from leader propagation models that are 
                         mostly based on laboratory observations of long electrical 
                         discharges or from observations of lightning attachment to tall 
                         structures. In this paper we use high-speed videos to analyze the 
                         attachment process of downward lightning flashes to an ordinary 
                         residential building. For the first time, we present 
                         characteristics of the attachment process to common structures 
                         that are present in almost every city (in this case, two buildings 
                         under 60 m in S{\~a}o Paulo City, Brazil). Parameters like 
                         striking distance and connecting leaders speed, largely used in 
                         lightning attachment models and in lightning protection standards, 
                         are revealed in this work.",
