Having been there, and done that Struck by lightning

I furled everything, kicked on the iron genny and headed directly into the storm cell, as the shortest amount of time spent in the cell is traveling through it opposite the way it's moving. If winds build to over 60 mph, then go with the storm. Unplug everything electrical/electronic you can and enjoy the ride.
