I pulled this info from an Alberta, Canada website:
"Like all electric charges, lightning is looking for the easiest path to the ground. Lightning safety involves avoiding situations where you could become a path to ground. The safest place to be during a storm is inside a house, large building or vehicle. If you are caught outside, avoid standing anywhere higher than the surrounding landscape, or under a tree or other structure that extends above the landscape. If you are in an open area, go to a low place such as a ravine or valley and squat but do not lie down. Stay away from metal objects like farm equipment, motorcycles, bicycles and golf carts. Get out of, off and away from open water."
