We had a big lightning storm here last night. Lost power in evening, apparently again LATE last night. Seems the lightning fried a radio-alarm clock and one small TV we have in our kitchen. I just realized that among my UPSCALE "adult toys", there is about $1000 of "rechargeable" toys plugged into two outlets in our bedroom, with NO "lightning surge protection". I am heading to the hardware store this morning to get a surge protection power strip for a few more items we keep plugged in (the charger for our yard tools) as well as my expensive "toys". Anyone else ever think of this issue, or do you use..ha, ha...lightning PROTECTION?
