If you haven't given any thought to lighting precautions for your shack check out this article from The Belleville (Illinois) Advocate. It reported an unusual event in July of 1867. 

Notice I didn't say "Lighting prevention." If it hits there's not much you can do. For information about protection and safety check out this page from the  ARRL
