Nope, it wasn't, but I had intentionally installed the antenna so that it did not exceed the height of the building it's attached to. Just our sorry luck that the lightning hit it instead of, e.g., the metal chimney for the wood stove, which sticks up a good deal higher.

You just can't trust lightning. Perhaps a lightning arrester would be a good idea since lightning does strike twice.
