Amazing! You hear stories where people are killed in freak accidents that shouldn't kill a person, then you hear stories like yours where a person could have died but didn't - makes you think that when it's your time, it's your time - and when it's not your time, it just ain't gonna happen.

You are a lucky pair of buggers!
I do not mean that you are lucky to be alive, although by the sounds of it, the hand of fate was upon your shoulders in your survival of this incident. You are however, lucky to have experienced something like that, been there in that moment. I am sure that you cannot deny, despite the terror it caused you at the time, that a part of you has never felt more alive than in those moments when lightning was scouring all around you, when the howling breath of the wind was at your back, when trees and debris were being thrown all about like so many bits of matchwood.
I wish I had been there!

Near death experiences are the best.
Running down the middle of the street to 'make it home' might not have been your best option.

Glad you guys made it safely home! I think someone/something was definitely looking out for you both. I bet you've never run that fast in your life.
