We have been having horrible batches of weather for the past couple of weeks with this unusual weather pattern.

(((Oh I'm so sorry Norma)))

Obviously it really could have been worse, but it still sucks that you guys lost your fense.

Yikes, Norma! But glad it was not worse.

We lost two televisions this year so far, but find new one's on CL for $50 or so, maybe you could find a computer there too?

They are saying it might hit 80 in Michigan by Wednesday, then down in the 50s on Thursday, which says storms to me.

But I did get all the leaves and dead stuff removed over the weekend and planted some pansies today! ;)

So sorry about the rotten luck, Norma. The loss of computer must be particularly inconvenient. I doubt a surge protector would be able to handle a hit like that, though you might be able to get some insurance money.

I'm not sure where my reply went so I'll do it again. Glad you and the family (including the furry members) are safe!!! I hope their poor little nerves calm down! You have had WAY more then you're fair share of Murphy lately. I think it is time he took a vacation!!!

Yes, we replaced the PetSafe transmitter Sat. morning. Cost $150. The computer was really old. I'm looking for a second hand from the guy that works on the computers at work. Comcast gave DH a new router free since he's a business customer. So far only out $150. The computer I can do w/o. I have DH's laptop when he's home and not traveling. I still want my own.
