Lightning does however strike twice in the same location, regardless of the so-called axiom.
In fact, any "single" lightning strike is actually multiple strokes in quick succession, following the same path of ionized air, hence the strobing effect.

However, "catching lightning in a bottle" is a different metaphor, suggesting the successful capture of something that's all but impossibly elusive.
I have to ask; why do you feel the need to point out the transparently obvious?
