An interesting thing happened late last week. As you may know, I work from home. Last week we had some problems with the power coming into the house.
The power line runs through a neighbor’s tree before it gets to our house. The line had been resting against a branch. Over the years the wind moving the branch had turned it into a kind of saw. The branch movement had sawed through one of the strands of the power line. The result was that some areas of the house had too much power and others didn’t have enough.
Our answering machine bit the dust. The garage door opener almost caught fire. However my computer is fine and dandy because it was on a surge protector.
Protect your computer with a surge protector. You never know when you’re going to need it!
