A journal entry from Eyeglasses & Endzones.
(In your best James T. Kirk voice)
Saturday, storms in our area. All seemed fine after the storm blew over...or so I thought. I walked into my house to notice that my washer and dryer, stove, microwave and every single digital clock in my house needed to be re-programed.
A little strange yes, but nothing highly unusual.
Until I walked up stairs that is. COMPUTER...NO NO NO NOT THE COMPUTER!!!!
Are you kidding me? My life support, my job,
What is a trekky to do?
I've been zapped right in the heart this is SOOO unfortunate.
Beem me up Scotty, I can't take this any longer.
Wait- I have a back up plan whew....I move swiftly down the stairs and swing the office door open sit down at the desk, YES, this is my back up plan..computer # 2!
Ahhhh but WAIT, The power light is gone...nothing is turning on...ARE YOU KIDDING ME...
THIS IS A MAC...it has to be smarter..Doesn't it?
Is it possible that BOTH of my computers are dead?
What did I do to deserve this?
Spock please help. I'm confused, I don't see anything but darkness.
Yes, I realize there may be more important issues such as health care and world hunger but for my world right now this...this right here is DEVASTATION.
Who do you call in a computer crisis?
911..nope thats not right.Ghost Busters..nope it is not 1984.Geek Squad?
(Well maybe if I wanted to take out a second mortgage on the house.)
I'm on my own for this one, I think maybe I need to call my insurance agent and let him know about this strange little incident. He says "
Tarah, this sounds like it was a power surge."
Then, it happened. I hung up the phone and started the laundry.
I closed the door and began my normal household
Dirty Clothes - Check
Laundry Soap - Check
Dryer Fire - CheckWait...BACK UP...WHAT???
Yep. Smoke. Coming from my dryer...
Luckily, I was here to catch it.
Unplugged the dryer and made the next phone call to the insurance agent...what is going on?
Bottom Line. Power Surge...Big Big Power Surge 220 Volts.
Pretty much all through my house, did not hit all the electronics
but it did hit a lot of them plus my dryer.
Moral of the story...
Don't do laundry!!!!!
I'm telling you this for your own good.
You could start a very LARGE power surge that could lead
Take my advice...
Have Scotty Beam you up,
turn that dryer off and RELAX already!!!
