Lightning Crashes

weheartit

I wish it had been that cute.
The saga of the Lightning Strike 2011 lives on. We got a new satellite box delivered and that fixed - absolutely nothing. Why's that? Because apparently the problem wasn't just the box - the actual satellite was struck by the lightning. And it wasn't just ours, our next door neighbor's got struck too. So, DirecTV will be out Thursday to try and fix all the satellite issues, and a TV repairman will try to fix the brokenness of the TV on Friday if that's covered by the warranty...
...and we're still left with the receiver, the Wii, and I'm not sure what else at this point that's not working. It's hard to access how many things don't work when you can hardly get anything to work to hook it up to.

Oh well.
We've been doing yard work this weekend.
Clearly I don't have a lot going on right now.

Oh geez, what are the chances?! It's so frustrating to deal with this sort of thing, but I hope it gets ironed out soon!

That all sounds really frustrating - I hope things get sorted!

You just could not WAIT to use that title, I bet ;) That would anger me very much, esp since you said homeowners insurance isn't covering it b/c of the deductible. I'm sorry :(

annoying, so sorry! At the very least you get to have a good story of the year your house was struck by lightening :)
