    So do any of you know of anyone house that has been hit by lightning? Well you do know SHIT!!! it makes a mess of the roof. The big Sukey part about it is it took out the TV, Surround Sound,Receiver,5 Disc. DVD player,wireless Router and the Modem. It took out 6 light in the house pop 4 breakers and I think the power from the bolt came out the wall in the kitchen because it left a hole in the wall the size of a dime. I was only 2 feet from the hole :scared What a loud sound it made. I'm so glade my family did not get hurt.

    Is the hole near a faucet or phone? That stuff is scary...and you might want to check your house ground system...if its working properly, none of that should happen.

    +1 on the grounding.

    We had some bad lightning a few months back. The only issue I had though was my sprinkler system wasnt grounded properly. The sprinkler timer got fried. $200 for a new timer, all because of $5 worth of copper wire.:banghead:

    :scared Glad your Ok thats scary. It will come right out of your electrical outlets and shoot across a room. This happened to my cousin, burned a hole in her leg be glad it was your wall. We have had our Apple tree hit 3 times by lighting in the past 19yrs. Weird the shortest tree in the yard and its hollow. Again glad your OK sorry it took your electronics....MrsD

    We had a squirrel take the wrong shortcut across the transformer last winter. Fried our VCR, microwave, and messed up our computer. The squirrel, too, I presume.

    Sorry about your cousin. This could have been really bad, if the roof did not hang over as it does it would have hit the gas meter.
