Personally  - if I hear thunder roaring and lightning cracking all 
around me the - last thing I am going to do is to unplug feeders and 
so on.

I want many more years in ham radio. I do not wish to be  a fried 
crisp in a box underground.

If you have not implemented proper lightning protection, DO NOT mess 
with your cables during a thunderstorm. Was it Benjamin Franklin who 
got a zap from a kite during his experiments ? The guy was lucky.
