Struck by Lightening



On December 24th, 2015 it came a bad storm with a lot of lightening ....I said "boy that lightening sure was close".  Since the net, tv, and phone would not  work after that......I called our provider!

When the AT&T guy came in the afternoon.  He showed us the phone box since it had been burned out from where the lightening struck!  and brought us a small piece of wire which is pictured above.

The repairman said we were hit hard, we sure were lucky.  We were so blessed and we went half the day not even knowing it!

We did lose a dvr, printer and Ooma phone box.....and a week of aggravation with them finally replacing the line that had been burned out.....but it sure could have been worse!

you came out good from this, it could have taken out every thing in your home, fridge, stove, TV... once our church kitchen was hit my lightning, to blew up and burned all the applicance and went through the lines and took out all the sound systems in the church. glad it was not bad but i do know it is bad enough. we lost a tree to lightning, cost us 1200.00 to get the mess taken down.
