Indoors within a properly insulated area, away from any water sources and electrical conductors.

MORE CANT HURT ...

Tall, pointy objects standing alone in an open space are more likely to get struck by lightning but it's by no means a certainty. Sometimes the flat ground next to a tall tree can be hit. A car or other enclosed metal structure is the safest place to be in a thunderstorm. Failing that, a ditch, trench or group of shrubs of uniform height is better than nothing. Keep away from boundary areas between dissimilar terrain (water and land; rock and earth; trees and fields). Also keep at least five metres away from metal objects or other people as lightning will often jump from one object to another.
