Good story and very cool that you lost some pins but not the entire device.
I have a similar story related to a lightning bolt.
A few months ago we had a lightning strike about 10 feet from my garage and about 25 feet from the location of my arduino bluetooth garage door opener (documented here on CP Never Buy A Garage Door Remote Again: Open Your Door With Your Android Phone (via Bluetooth)[^] ).
We lost a wifi router, a cable modem and a PS4 had to be repaired.

My garage door special has no casing or anything and it began not responding to my bluetooth signal.
I noticed that it still powered up and all that, but it didn't work.
I put it back on the bench and found that the one pin (which I output on to activate the relay) no longer worked but the rest of the chip was entirely fine. I simply changed the code to use a new pin. Swapped out the relay input wire to the new pin and everything worked again.

Those arduindos and ATMegas are great stuff. Smile | :)
