We were struck by lightening Friday evening!

I won't be able to be on much until Wednesday night...that is when Verizon is supposed to come and repair our FIOS. We are without TV, Phone and Internet until they repair it.

We were all sitting in the family room Friday evening, enjoying a movie and listening to the gentle pitter-patter of rain on the windows, when all of a sudden there was a huge boom.....super bright light and the house shook.......we all jumped off of the sofas and hit the floor........scared the beegeebers right out of all of us. The house didn't catch fire, but we lost alot of electrical stuff including the FIOS box...it really took the brunt of the charge. It also knocked a curtain rod, screws and all out of the wall...really weird!! After we realized we weren't on fire or injured, I screamed....My machines!! I ran to the basement and checked them, and they survived...they were plugged into a serge protector. Best investment yet!!

Well, I have to jump off of here...I am on a public computer at the library....so more as I can find a computer until next Wednesday night..............

Love to everyone...........................just thankful to be alive today!!
