Quick update

This past Tuesday (19 July) the house got hit by lightning. Knocked out my mom's TV; the kidlet's TV/VCR Combo, DVD player, and Xbox; the living room TV and TiVo; the furnace/AC fan controller board and garage door opener; the two smoke detectors; the cable modem, Vonage appliance, Router, and the network ports of both my computer and the wireless router. It also made my motherboard unstable so I had to get another one.

All this on the very first day that the kidlet was to spend a few hours at home doing some summer school work before my mom got home. I called him at 3:00 pm and between then and around 5 it hit. We bought a new Samsung 27" flat CRT and TiVo for the living room that evening, and I spent the next day waiting for the electrician, cable repair and AC repair people. We got most everything major fixed (all except the computer stuff) that day I was out of work, but I had only just gotten the computer network back online to the tune of nearly $700. Add that to the $500 for the TV and TiVo and it looks like that nagging feeling of wanting to look into renter's insurance that I had been feeling the last couple months will get some serious attention.
