I feel like I've been "cut off" from the world lately! Last Sunday night, my house got zapped by lightning. My son & I are both fine, along with our two kitties. But here's the list of electronic casualties:
- Ethernet card
- 60-inch projection TV (it's about 10 yrs old and it was given to me, but still...I got spoiled by that big screen)
- Xbox 360
- My son's guitar amp
- Hot water heater (that was installed brand-new 4 months ago when I moved in, the realtor and landlord will replace it this week, thankfully)
Do I have renter's insurance? Ummm no. But you can bet I'll be looking into it for the future!
So, even though there are things that we'll have to do without for a while, I'm just glad we're ok, and that there was no structural damage to the house...and I'm REALLY glad my computer didn't get fried too.
I was able to get online elsewhere during the week and order a cheapie ethernet card on Ebay. I also had an old modem here at the house so I could get back online late last night (after only a couple bad words trying to take out the old ethernet card).
Let's just say I'm glad to be back!!
