Stormy Weather

We rarely get thunder & lightning storms in this part of the valley but we had one between 3 and 4 this morning, followed by a light, fragrant summer rain. It was a pretty active storm, too. So many flashes and bolts it was hard to keep up. I love these storms, but my ‘puter doesn’t. Do you know what to do to protect your computer?

How do you protect your computer during a storm? Unplug it, right. But it’s easy to forget to unplug the modem. Don’t just unplug the power cord, unplug the phone cord or the cable. A surge of electricity can get to it from there just as easily as the power cord. And if it’s still attached to your PC, well, that would be bad.

Got everything unplugged? Good, I feel better. 🙂
