A lightning strike has an energy way above 1 TeV, but it is spread out. And as mentioned, 1 TeV is a lot for a single particle, but nothing in the macroscopic world.

At the LHC, roughly 1 out of 10 billion collisions produces a Higgs boson. The huge challenge for the detectors is to identify those rare events in all the other stuff.
