It scared the hell outta me now i'm all saint.. til i forget about it
this isn't the first time, there was another time when i lived in minnesota.. lightning struck hit a power line and the bolt kind of surged into the outlets and knocked out the power and where the pc's where plugged in it burnt out the ethernet cord on the router, but it wasn't realized til the electricity was back on.. that made no sound just a sizzle lol
I was without a pc for a while, i could of replaced it part by part but i just went and bought a new one, they aren't as expensive as they used to be.. the repair shop had a new (slightly used) one, he gave me a good deal i paid 300 so it's all good, same brand.. and yes a lesson is learned..
yea, i did feel my hair on end very strongly, that was weird, i heard that when that happens it will strike in that vicinity.. i just thought i had a severe case of chills lol
when it's cold and rainy outside, thats where i like to be on my pc, with some hot coffee, relaxed and enjoying, but for now on when lightning is striking i'm grabbing my covers and hiding under the bed.. lol
