Interestng story, but how do you know it was "induced voltages"?. A
lightning strike could easily travel through 50 yards of earth looking
to equalize the earth/air voltage difference even further, and your
equipment unfortunately, was in the way. I'm not saying it wasn't
"induction", just that simple conduction is an alternate possibility. 

Just wondering. I have no idea how to prove it one way or the other.
