Alas being a Centaur myself as well, I'm NOT crazy about loud noises either; thunderclaps, gunshots, backfires, etc...

A valley is the LAST place you want to be when it rains. This may seem like a dry thunderstorm, but what it you are wrong? In the valley, you are going to get flash floods. Flash floods come with little or no warning. Plus, it may not rain where you are but it could "upstream" of you and the flash flood will have even less warning. Someone does not know much about how weather works. Especially rain. I would expect this from the unexperienced but a ranch hand who seemingly has lived there for her whole life? ERROR!!

@Old Crow: I used to live in Arizona where the flash-floods happened regularly; you're preaching to the choir here.

It actually is the professional opinion of several sources that if you're caught outside during a lightning storm, you should seek shelter in low-lying areas, like valleys or depressions. safety-outdoors.shtm

Also, since this is Shirleen's property, she presumably knows the area's wash patterns. The valley's she's heading to may not experience flooding during a rainstorm.

@DarkwingDork: Yes, in a lightning storm you do not want to be the tallest object around or else you will no longer be the tallest object around. I doubt that there are any valleys that will not flood in a rainstorm even if that storm is "upstream" of the valley unless the ground is so dry and absorbent that no rain reaches the valley. The high ground is dangerous and so is the valley. It is best to fins a spot away from both, preferably away from where lightning will likely strike.
