    and you probably didn't get the much needed rain to go with it.

    I feel your pain. We had no power in South Florida for 3 weeks after Wilma (which accounts in part for the move to TX.. no hurricanes)

    We're so reliant on electricity for everything now. Even gotta have the a/c. Didn't grow up with half that crap but now it's a must-have.

    Sorry to see that lightning struck the roof, that's scary. I hate summer lightning storms. Never know when the power's gonna go out. I always say I'm gonna be prepared next time but next time never seems to get here for some reason.

    Attention all Texas Linkers! We have a situation at Mansion de le Metalhead. Bring all the beer and Cabo you can and we will SIT (notice I say nothing about working) and help Mikey through this trying time so he does not have to go through it alone. What are friends for, right???



    Seriously, Mikey, hope everything is up and running real quick. If you do need anything let me know.

    Wow, that sucks.

    Same thing happened to me several years ago and I lost my surround sound receiver, my sub, DVD player, TV, microwave, my 5150 amp, and a phone/answering machine. The one thing it didn't get was my computer. It survived unscathed. I hope everything works out for you.
