Thunder Gas?

On a recent road trip, I found myself low on fuel, in the midst of a pretty severe thunderstorm. That is, I left behind 1.8" hail, but it was coming up behind me as I stopped for gas.

My question is: what do you do when you have to stop to fuel up, but there’s a thunderstorm at the time? Sit and wait it out? Fill up and pray you don’t become a lightning rod attached to a fuel-air explosive?

What do you do?


P.S. That title, “Thunder Gas”, could mean many things, as my nickname is Thunder.
