Hi Pen, like the expression when it rains it pours the house took a direct shot from lightning Thursday at 6:30 pm and I lost 3 computers, my 64 inch television, the router and printer. In fact I got a little shot to my face. Not sure if that was from the rounter but I saw a flash and got a little burn on my left cheek. Friday I was tied up with an electrician who checked the wiring out because I didn't need any concerns of fire and of course I had to deal with the insurance company. Luckily I have 7 computers in the house well had seven. The computers that were hard wired were the ones hit. I'm left with an ultra book and laptops which I don't care for. Anyway I survived.
I don't think I was hit by the lightning I think it was electricity shooting out of the router. It was kind of scary. The good thing is I will get to buy that 4KHD television now. LOL
I will rise from the ashes of my router. Dan
I kept thinking of lightning bolts!! I was worried that you had had a relapse... and sick again. Thank God you are alright..... when I was reading it I remembered Daniel Brinkleys direct lightning hit.... that shot across every nail in his floor nearly killing him.
I know how you feel, I don't like laptops..... we have 3, and all I do with one is play a game I like because that is what Edd downloaded it too, the others never get used..... I like my big computer....
Your TV and computers would be covered by insurance wouldn't they? So I imagine you will be back in business soon...
Before I read this post I had this up reading it....At one lake in Venezuela, lightning flashes 28 times a minutehttp://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150810-the-most-electric-place-on-earth
