Been there...

About 25 years ago, driving just outside of Flagstaff lightning hit a big pine right next to the road.

Big explosion & flash, my Honda was covered with hundreds of sticky toothpicks.

It took quite a while for all four of us to get the seat covers out of our asses..... Shocked

Several years ago in Sedona, we were setting on our porch deck and watching the thunder storm. A nice strike about 1/5 mile from us in the forest and that tree lite up very nice, fortuantely enough rain so it didn't catch anything else on fire. A nice show but not as fantasic as years ago (many) when we lived in CA and driving down a fairly major road in Orange county and the car felt wierd on steering, well 50 fords tended that way. I looked and noticed all the power poles along the road swaying big time and lines shorting out in a spectacular display. Yes, a really good CA earthquake can put on a display!

I've been near a few strikes and it seems they never have the build up they have in the movies.  We were standing in a parking lot here at a restaurant waiting on other family to arrive just after a rain.  POW! It hit a metal pole about 20 feet from us.  No rumbles before nor after.
