Re: Lightning strikes are always fun

I had a lightning strike experience when I was working a point-of-sale support job. The strip mall where one of the restaurant units I supported was struck by lightning in the wee hours of the morning. I arrived to find a long line of contractor and repair vans all down the row of shops, as no one had been spared. After I finished replacing the phone system, server, one of the dumb terminals, and the power supply for the credit card terminal, everything was working acceptably again. (the electronic safe was still fried, but I couldn't do anything about that)
