So I get home from work and a tree had fallen on my hot tub and my lawn tractor. I had the lawn tractor next to the hot tub because I have a trailer hooked up to it filled with dirt. The dirt was in the trailer because my well started leaking over the weekend and it's located under the hot tub. Then during dinner lightning struck my house and my satellite dish.  Going from the dish reciever to my stereo to my PS4 to my tv and to my router. All fried.

Keeping tally that's god 3000 scraper 0. I guess the bright side is that my PS3 went unharmed.

man.  keep your head up Scraper. 

at least noone was hurt via tree fall or lightning.  I'd seriously consider moving if that happened in such a short time.

The reason why it happened is that you worship good instead of God. Heathen.  Tongue

Seriously, that freaking sucks! At least you were not ON the tractor when it got taken out.

My week started off with a couple days worth of kidney stones followed by a falling out with a dear childhood friend followed by a humiliating instance at work that has basically destroyed my reputation there.

Take that.

I should add that the leaking well, felled tree, and lightening strike all happened within about a 20 foot radius. I think I'm going to do as much as I can to stay away from that area this week.

Yeah, it sounds like God just hates that one spot in particular.  You're just an innocent bystander.

The piss parade continues. Because of my honesty I reported to my insurance that the lightening strike and tree happened at two separate times during the day. Therefore they count it as two separate claims with two separate deductibles. I could have easily said the tree fell at the same time as the lightening since the actual spot where the lightening hit the ground is literally 5 feet from the tree trunk. That teaches me to be honest.  @#$(*&%

IF you hadn't been honest about the lightning, they might have come to peruse and put two and two together and then denied everything.

Yeah even if I had known it before hand I still would have been honest about it. But I really don't see how they could say they didn't happen at the same time short of me telling them that. There's even a blast hole from the lightening in the ground next to the tree trunk.

Hey I spelled it right in the first post. Shouldn't that count for something?

I am drinking some beer right now. On the bright side of things the downed tree made it ok with the wife for me to buy this:



The insurance company said they could hire someone to cut it up or they would pay me for my time to do it. I immediately said I would do it.

So, Scraper, is there any chance that the tree that fell indirectly led the lightning hitting your house?  I have to feel that the tree would have taken the strike and saved your house.

No, thanks for asking though. I was mostly venting when I first posted this. Still down a PS4, I had to take it to Best Buy to have them verify that it was broken and couldn't be fixed. Sure enough they said it would cost more to try and fix it than it's worth. So now my insurance has to replace it. Not sure when the check will come. Until then I'm down most of my electronic equipment. The one saving grace in all of this is that the PS3 is still working perfectly so I will work on my PS3 backlog until the check comes in.

No, I have a lot of big trees in my back yard all within 50 feet of the house. The tree that fell had 3 other big trees within 20 feet of its base. That Thor picture isn't too far off, accept the lightening strike was much closer to my house and there aren't any other houses near mine.
