I planned on sleeping in this morning, but very early there were several lightning strikes that woke up even my teenagers. For four hours the Internet was out (so I went back to sleep).
Once I woke up the Internet was out for another hour or so (and so were the lights, for a bit). My Time Warner Digital Phone Modem is totally fried (and they can’t replace it until Sunday! – so no home phone for now). It won’t even power up.
My son came back in and asked me what exploded on the front sidewalk.
I went and looked. This can only be a lightning strike, I think – it was fine yesterday.
My son took some pictures.
We are entirely sick of rain, and thunderstorms. Please make it stop. Now.
