Lightning Storm

lightning storm

We had more severe weather last weekend, and this time I wasn’t on top of things and didn’t turn the computers off or unplug them.

I should have known.

I just wasn’t thinking.

I’m kicking myself now, but it’s too late, the damage is done.

I knew better. But I didn’t do it and we were hit. We still aren’t sure just how or where the hit happened, but it looks like it came through the electrical lines. The wireless router was zapped and the power supply of one computer was fried. (At least we hope  that that’s all the happened…but the printer has been acting goofy since the storm…)

Of course it was the newest computer that was knocked out of commission. (Murphy’s Law!) So I’m back to work on the old slow computer while my dear wonderful and very talented “techie” husband tries to salvage what we can on the other.

If only I had paid attention and unplugged the electronics that afternoon. We would have saved so much time and hassle.
