My close call was 20/30 ft away in the 1970's. Lightning and BANG in one go. About ten of us sheltering nearly jumped out of our skin. We were in a doorway and the lightning luckily hit a telegraph pole on the opposite side of the road.

To be honest I've never given mine any kind of specific lightning drills. It's never really occured to me to. Notwithstanding this tragic accident, it's still not right up there on the things to do list.
