Lightning does not even have to hit your house to destroy appliances and TV sets. It can hit anywhere close and take out your stuff.

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

Update: Cable guy is here. Found junction on main line fried. Switched our whip to a new port. (luckily the whip wasn't fried) Replacing all three cable boxes and the internet Modem/router. The HDMI connection on the den TV we used for cable was fried, so cable guy disconnected the DVD and use that ...

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

Electricity to me is witchcraft :) It's like plumbing for amps and volts! :lol: I suspect you have an electrical leak and need to put duct tape over all outlets that are unused so the electricity stops leaking out. Ha - you can't fool me! .....I'd use ELECTRICAL tape https://media1.tenor.com/images...

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

Had a weird problem in my house a month or so ago - 3 outlets in the Kitchen went out, including the refrigerator outlet. Looked at the breaker box and none were tripped. HOWEVER, when I went through and tried each one there was one that hadn't "tripped", but flopped back and forth rather than clic...

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

We really like the beautiful fan in our bedroom; we'll have to see if we can live with a ceiling fan on high all the time. Does your fan also have a pull chain for speed setting? If so, does it still work on all 3 speeds? The remote receiver in the fan housing might have blown, these can be replace...

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

Check all breakers? Outlets are sometimes on different breakers than lights. Also, I've lost TVs and other electronics to lightning - now there's weird electricity. I'm thinking we had a strike, but no way to confirm it. No tripped breakers except the internal breaker in the garbage disposal; TV's,...

Re: Looking for a financial planner

As many have stated, if you pay someone to advise you make sure they are a fiduciary. CFP's (Certified Financial Planner) have that duty, but as my wife and I and several of my co-workers learned even that's not an absolute guaranty. We all had to go to arbitration (FINRA trial) for the unscrupulous...

Weird electrical issues at my home!

While we were out of town my brother was coming by to get mail and check on things. On Saturday evening, Jan 18, he called me to tell me he tried to watch TV and couldn't get anything to work; the screen said no signal. (I always leave the TV on when we are away) When we got back yesterday I checked...

Re: Kaufman County TX, 1-23-20: 18 seized firearms for sale.

I wonder if it was unpaid taxes from a Gun Shop or Pawnshop. I never knew your personal property could be seized for unpaid property taxes. :shock: Not only do we lose our homes for unpaid rent to the politicians we now have to give up our guns. As my friend says the government is now king! Smells ...

Re: WD40

WD40 even though it is slick, it will remove oil and grease and over time will wear out a part or two because of no oil. We use it to clean grease and oil off of parts as well as removing tar from your vehicles Thank you RP. That joggled my memory. If I'm not mistaken, the "WD" stands for Water Dis...

Re: Anyone ever see a cat like this?

Yes, such was the Texas black panther, once. My dad was a state park volunteer in Brazos where he and a few others over the years swore they saw what looked like a black panther. Many sightings were reported across the state saying same. TPW said folks were seeing some other animal. Years later, th...
