39.48, -82.98

A bolt of lightning creates a huge magnetic field that can induce currents in nearby conductors. Power lines, irrigation equipment, fences -- all can carry currents. I suppose your tractor and baler would qualify as insulated conductors (sitting on rubber tires) and you were a path to ground.
