And yes most modern appliances are still powered on to some extent, even when you switch them "off". Standby power for the clock etc. A basic fridge wont have any fancy electronics, just a motor and thermostat usually, It takes a big jolt to kill those.
I agree with everyone else. Call your homeowner insurance agent. We have been hit by lightening a couple times and they paid for everything. One time it blew up everything on our local network. Since the shop, offices and house are all on the same network, there was quite a pile of smoked electronics - even cables. Another time, it knocked all the connections to wall outlets lose. That one is hard to understand. We got an electrician to take all of the outlets in the house out and tighten the connections. Homeowner's paid for that, too.
