Default Re: A little Lightening goes a long way

Glad you're o.k. Phyll. We have that happen to us about once a year with all the 80 ft. pine trees in our yard. One will get hit and the residual will arc to the wiring in the house and blow out the most sensitive electronics.

Usually it will take out the smallest electronic components, which it sounds like it did in your case too. The garage door sensor, computer peripherals, T.V.'s, etc. You might also check your alarm system (if you have one). These are vulnerable too.

Thomas
