Getting struck by lightning is like winning the lottery, except of course, not as lucky.

5598831Spring time is almost here! Days are longer, the weather is warmer, and the storms will start rolling in. Here in the Midwest we get some doozies! We use to hide in the root cellar when they hit, but times have changed. Now everyone runs outside with their phones to record the neighbor’s house being blown away!
With the storms, comes the lightning. It’s cool to watch but it is not very good for your electronics. “I hate the smell of burning electronics in the morning.” One good strike, and your TV, stereo, computer, furnace and fancy coffee maker that uses those little cups could all go up in smoke.
Luckily, Intermatic makes a great Surge Protection Device that will protect your home and all those fancy electronics.
