Computers & storms

In my neck of the woods it’s wise to not only turn your computer off when thunderstorms are predicted but you better unplug them and unhook your connection to the phone lines.  In the eleven years that we have lived here on the farm I have lost three computers to lightning.   In this rainy season that we’re having and have had I usually unplug everything until all danger has passed.

This the reason that my posts have been few and far between.  I hope this weekend to be caught up on everything that has been put on hold for the last month and a half.  So, expect to see a lot of email notices and please be patient with me.  Tomorrow is a new and quiet weather day but for the wind!!

Have a great evening and holiday weekend!!

    Wow… I’ve read about, but haven’t paid much mind to it. I better though because here in FL, we also get plenty of thunder and lighting… Thanks for the input…

      Hope you don’t have to deal with it at all. I’ve had surge protectors (best you can buy) with them and it makes no difference. The last time the surge protector was a melted mess when it came in on our phone lines!!
      Happy holiday!
