To be fair, I can understand what she was thinking: She probably thought that power goes out due to some kind of "EMP effect" caused by lightning, and that it wasn't the electric company turning off the electric, but rather, that the electric in the sky caused all nearby electronics to temporarily die. Heck, I'm studying as an engineer, and I still have no idea why they turn off power during storms.
Sometimes people say stupid things. That's why we invented the internet: it collects the stupidity so it can't hurt as many.
