had a TERRIBLE storm this afternoon and GOT HIT BY LIGHTNING
NO phone no dish tv!
phone guy is supposed to be here tomorrow morning, tv guy not til friday.. geez
borrowing neighborhood wireless.. and it's sloooooooooooooooow
so not much online time
just glad it wasn't worse
blew holes in the yard - dirt, grass etc all over, think it hit a sweet gum in the back and then traveled toward the house and the ground line, knocked out the phone boohoo
Did anyone get hurt? I certainly hope not!!! :shock: That must have been terrifying!!
I'm glad that you are fine. That's a scarey experience.
glad you are okay, take care and things will work out
Wow, lightning strikes are terrifying when they're that close. Hope you're all ok, and no one got hurt.
nobody hurt but I'm petrified of lightning now-that was TOO close. Jay saw it hit (the flash) then saw the dirt flying as it traveled towards the house.
I'm not sure if that was the one that knocked out the phone because the phone 'rang' funny a couple times before that -
it also hit the ice maker (it's not hooked up) in the frig...
frig working ok
That is terrible. I'm just glad you all are OK.
Thank God you're o.k., what a horrible experience
My goodness. time to get a lightening rod!
Goodness.....luck you were not on the phone at the time!!
I have heard that you should stay off the phone during a lightening storm, as it ot hits the lines, or anywhere near your house, the charge can travel through the wires and electocute the person on the end of the phone.
So glad no one was hurt, I bet it was reall LOUD too!!
