My cable modem was knocked out by a lightning strike over the weekend, and I just got things put to rights yesterday afternoon. I'm lucky the cable-modem was all I lost: it sounded like the lightning strike actually hit my house. The power went out, my television's picture-tube was gaussed something terrible (although after leaving it turned off for awhile, the picture and color were restored), etc. The repairman told me that the lightning also fried the junction between the outside cable line and the link to the pole.

And just to make things fun, this crummy weather is supposed to last all week.
