Tonight we arrived to find we must have lost power at some point in a big way.
The family room back up battery surge protector failed--
We've got a big loss of electrical stuff here.
The family room tv is toast, we've lost the interned due to a fried router--both the towers for my AT&T phone and the boy's Verizon phones are gone---deader than door nails.
The house phone line is also dead. I have an old dial phone for storm purposes, remember--the phone line worked when we were last here, it does not now.
Computer printer is toast. All were on heavy duty battery back up surge protectors.
There are several electrical outlets that no longer work--and the night lights are also fried!!
There are can lights in the master bedroom ceiling and those are either non functioning receptacles or the bulbs have all blown.
One thing I am very grateful for---this is all fixable. Yes, it will be spendy to replace all of this, but if it was an electrical storm--we are lucky that there was no house fire.
I am sending this from the corner of the upstairs bedroom tethered to the Hubster's phone--
In the morning we will be off to Boone to start re-purchasing what we need to get back up and running.
If you don't hear from me for a bit, you'll know why--and there is plenty of quilting to keep me busy!
Oh, this is Sadie on here way up here, before we knew what we would find.
Love from Buck Mountain--
