While I wait on the Braves game... @ 09:36 pm

Current Location: 30062

This 4-Block World reminded me of the first training gig I did for my latest company, at this client. I saw Jesse White in an old episode of The Twilight Zone the other day, acting opposite Carol Burnett, of all people.

We had a really nasty thunderstorm come through the neighborhood about an hour ago. They've been predicting it for about a week now, and it was pretty wild. Lightning, thunder, wind, rain coming down in sheets, even a little hail. It was so cool. I'm glad I have surge protection on the house.

"On the house"...that made me smile for some odd reason.
:-)

Good morning, John!

It wasn't like it was free, if that's what you were thinking...

Nah!
I was actually just thinking how nice that must be to have that comfort factor, because I love a good thunderstorm!

Used to be that a storm like that would knock out all of the electricity and cable connections, so surge protection was money well spent. (I've lost a cable modem and the Ethernet card in my computer to similar lightning strikes.) The storm scared the hell out of one or two of the cats, but that's normal; it's nice to be able to watch from the comfort of home.

Yes, the memory is still fresh here from losing electronic equip.
If ever I get the spare $$$ I'd love to have it done too.

Kitties are so animated. I love watching their antics. They bring me much joy.:-)

Mine are frightened by the storms also & really freaked on the 4th.
It sounded like a war zone here & went on until midnight--before they came out!;-)
