                                    when it was struck by lightening at  3 AM this morning.
  • narrowly missing her house and vehicle.
It left the high voltage line underneath it...
but on top of the lines that feed the road, which shorted  everything out.
While stopping by to check on Gertrude and make sure she didn't take her 94 year old self out to the car, the neighbor from across the street came over to say the explosion woke him up and blew up all of his electronics before his surge protector could kick in.   Ouch.
Wind was blowing at a steady 40-60 MPH until it slowed to 30 this eve, which is when the power guys all came out.
9:30 PM.
It is still 59 degrees.
SNOW expected by morning.
Weird weather we are having.


  1. Where are you located?

    Glad no one was hurt.

  2. Wow! Glad it wasn't any worse. And glad to hear your power was restored before it got really cold...

  3. It is FREEZING this morning... CT Susan Weird Weeather Capital.... News said this morning wind gusts were up to 75 MPH ... My post in the works was wiped out when the power went out *sigh* starting over..... :}
