I really don't want to hear that!

I still have about 2 miles of christmas light wires on my house. I fear I may be the next Ben Franklin.

Please tell me you're not out there NOW taking down lights!? I thought you were ok as long as you were inside and not holding the Christmas light wires in your hand?

Just finished disconnecting the 100+ data lines that connect the controls on the roof to the computer in the basement... It's not supposed to be a problem this time of year.

Some how that storm triggered my Mini Van (with the Electric side Doors) to open by itself 2am this morning I just happen to look out side to find my Van Wide Open in the pouring rain.. The interior lights were still on so it had to happen with in the last 30 min's because it has an auto shut off after 30 mins, to save the battery from going dead..

The doors were locked and the remote was on the table when all of this happen. The Van started fine this morning, just a little wet

Loss of power for about 30 minutes and it wasn't even raining. Then it hit the fan 20 minutes later. One impressive light show. Lightining bolts hitting the ground all over in the distance. *****Ride The Lightining******
