Zapped!

My sister's house was struck by lightning last night!  It hit the phone box and went all the way to the house. They lost power and the phone. The power's back on, but the phones are still a mess. They're lucky it wasn't worse, though. The house didn't catch on fire. Their computers seem to be okay...but they have dial-up, so no internet!  Gee, I hope that's fixed before next weekend, when I'm housesitting.

There was a fairly nasty storm last night. Not a lot of rain, but enough thunder and lightning to wake me up at 4:00 a.m.!

I'm sick as a dog. Had a fever last night. If Easter wasn't this Sunday, I'd skip choir tonight.

How Horrible! Thank God noone was ON the phone when the lightening hit! That happened to my brother once and it burned his arm pretty badly.

I'm surprised it didn't fry the computer, though...I've always been told that if lightening hits the phone, I won't have a computer any more.

I hope you're feeling better by Easter Sunday...When I have a fever just before something big, I plaster myself with Vicks Vaporub, and climb into bed witha ton of blankets on...and, of course, drink ginger tea...:D...that'll either kill or cure ya...:D
