Lightning Anyone?

I''d lived in CLearwater, FL for 20 years and seemed like lightning struck everything down there. Power transformers, homes, even Stop signs.. but I''d never heard anyone speak of it hitting a mast or whatever. I do know that some lightning bolts have enough energy to run the city of Chicago for 24 hours so it seems like if you do get hit, you''re out of luck. Anyone else?
