Lightning can occur anywhere that conditions are right for it, and it can be created artificially with a Tesla Coil, but some locations are more likely than others. Tampa, FL has more lightning strikes than anyplace in the world, and Tampa is the native word for "sticks of fire." The expression "a bolt from the blue" is a metaphor for a lightning strike on a cloudless day. In addition, there are flash lightning and cloud-to-cloud lightning, and perhaps other kinds of lightning.
