The thunder storm is outrageous. We're getting lightning flashes literally every few seconds. I wonder if I should turn off and unplug the pc.

Surge protector is the way forward ;)

Surge protectors about as much use agenised a lightning bolt as an ice cube agenised a forest fire.

Best unplugging anything valuable and reading a book.
Yes, but it helps against surges from power cuts (caused from the bad weather)... which is my point :p

Just had that there as well. Electricity went off for a few seconds and my router lost connection for about 5 minutes. Best lightning storm I've seen in years with constant flashes every few seconds.

We've never had anything come through the electical sockets but a few years ago our tv arial got hit by lightning. Blew 2 tv's, VCR and a hifi that were interconnected.
Fortunately my tv was going through a signal booster and the lightning didnt affect it!
