How can I minimize the chance of being struck by lightening?

When Lightening Strikes

If there is an approaching storm and your skin tingles or hair tries to stand on end, immediately "GET SMALL." You may not have more than a couple seconds to act.

Squat low to the ground on the balls of your feet, with your feet close together. Place your hands on your knees, with your head between them. Be the smallest target possible, and minimize your contact with the ground.
