The only times I have had lightning damage were when my grounding had been
damaged. Once was when the telco took "their" ground loose from "my"
ground. I lost a computer that time.
W8JI has pointed out that commercial broadcast practice of proper grounding
and proper routing lets them stay on during storms and sustain tower hits
without (much) interruption..
Personally, I disconnect everything BUT the grounds and use
shorting-grounding plugs on the disconnected feeders
