So Friday the 13th stops by and I unplug my laptop for a moment and go to plug it back in and the jack won't insert and it looks like the very center of the adapter stayed in the laptop so it's not gonna power up anymore. I had the sense to quickly register it while the batteries were charged and did an online chat with a real tech that I suspect was actually a pretty good algorithm but it's covered and they are sending a box that I am to put it in and just send it off and hope it returns all better.

We just had a bad storm by Florida standards and I was standing outside admiring the lightning when it struck the lot next door and suddenly everything was white and very loud.

It missed me by thaaaaaaaaat much.

The TV's weren't as lucky and I just noticed the Intercom got fried as well which is bad timing because the wife is having knee replacement surgery on Tuesday and she'll need it when she gets back ot rather I will so I don't have to stay within shouting distance while she recovers. We've got a whole house surge thing but the lights show green meaning it is OK so I dunno.

All the times I've had lightning strike near me I never had anything more wrong than just being knocked out for a moment so I guess I should consider myself Lucky.

All's well if it doesn't kill ya.

Holy crap! You are one lucky bastard. :)

I hope your wife's surgery goes well next week. Hopefully no more electrical storms for now.
