POWER surge

Last night we had a power surge. Lynettea didn't know what was going on. She tried to cook vegetables in the microwave and they didn't cook. Then a long time later there was a noise and the power went off, although the lights were on. In fact the lights got brighter.
 So she looked in the meter box and a switch had flicked off. Then she rang up an electrician who came out, even though it was night. I didn't like this and Lynettea made me stay in the bedroom, as all the plugs had to be checked until he found the surge guards had been ruined by the power surge.
Fortunately no equipment was destroyed. I wouldn't like to lose my computer as I like to visit my blogging friends. The neighbour next door told Lynettea they also had a power surge.

I was worried about your computer when I saw your blog title... but then realized that if it had been damaged, you wouldn't have been posting!

Yikes, that is scary! Jan keeps most of our electronic devices on power surge strips. We're glad you were all safe and they protected your appliances, but we're sorry you'll have to replace them.
