So, my car was hit by lightning at the Grove City, OH supercharger...

After a month and a half, my car is back! I missed it so much, especially since I had to drive a BMW for the last 2 weeks. It was worth the wait, though. The people at the Columbus, OH service center did an EXCELLENT job. I'm very happy with how Tesla treated this matter. The visor doesn't seemed to have been signed, though. I'll send a message out to bonnie about it.

Great news! Did they allow you to share what was actually fixed/replaced?
They replaced a lot of stuff, not all of it broken, and sent it to Fremont for testing. So I really don't know exactly what was broken or what went wrong. I think we'll just have to wait for Tesla to release any information on that.

Bummer. I suspect they won't have very much to say and I'd have loved to hear all about it. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they think it is interesting enough to comment publicly.

Did warranty cover lightning strike?

I believe the Op explained that. Normally no. Normally, you would go through your insurance. However, Tesla wanted to examine the car and came to an agreement to cover the replacement/repair costs as a courtesy so that they could study the vehicle and how it was affected.
