I am sure you remember my scare-warnings that, ”It doesn’t happen to you, until it does!”
One of the things you need to plan for is the protection of your electronic stuff, which we rely on a lot and often spend a lot of money on. That’s why people need “Uninterruptible Power Sources” or UPS. I have posted about them HERE and HERE.
These things are powerful surge protectors and back-up batteries which will keep your equipment running steady on in the case of power loss. They can give you time to shut things like computers down normally or keep them safe from momentary or short power outages. They come with software which will shut your computer down automatically if the battery runs low. Useful if you are away.
I just had a note from a priest who lives in the countryside.
I have two APC Back-UPS ES 550. I had all electronics plugged in. Just now, out of the blue sky, though there were some nearby clouds, lightning hit my little dwelling. A direct hit, leaving things literally sizzling outside for a couple of seconds. Everything inside was in good working order, however, because of the UPS units. They have saved equipment and work many times. I suppose I should replace them one day. They must wear out after a while. I’ll have to search WDTPRS for a link. Thanks for prepping us all for those times when “It doesn’t happen to you, until it does.”
There are lots of options. A good one is HERE.
I have had the best experience from APC products, included customer service hands down. I have had the worst with Ultra. Yuck.
