Had lightning strike our transformer yesterday afternoon (4:30ish). Finally got our electricity back this morning. FIL, 77 yr old, was home (he lives on the property with us in his own place) didn't think anything about it, just started his generator and plugged in his tv and computer and went on about his business. I found out about 1 am this morning coming home after a baseball game and fireworks and called the Elect. Coop about 6 am. Nothing better than a short night's sleep and not answering nature's call 1st thing in the morning. Hope everyone else's 4th is starting out better than mine and the guys who got to switch out the transformer for us this morning.
