Geez, this is the second time this summer I've been taken out by a lightning strike!
I was taking a nap until the fatal hit, some 100 yards or so away. I must have levitated three feet in the air!
It took Duke Power almost four hours to get to me, since I was the only house affected. Kudos to those guys.
I reserve the full force of my venom for the Verizon computer-auomated system. I did everything according to the voice menus from my cell phone, and awaited a repair sometime Monday. Along 5pm, I started getting antsy. I called again. My situation had a hold on it, so I walked it back through. (All the while trying to keep murerous thoughts at bay!) So the next day, a nice guy showed up, replaced a span between two poles, and I was back in business, save having to purchase another modem. Guess who will be unplugging the phoneline fromthe back of his computer from now on?
So, I've only got to hear the last hour of Heads Up America today.
