Thunder And Phone

scorched phone line

*On Sunday (Aug. 24th), a bolt of lightening hit the side of the building, came down the phone line, leaving black scorch marks at the phone plug, completely burnt the internet box router (it smelled of burning plastic and other weird fumes) travelled up the USB wire from the router destroying the printer/scanner then down the Ethernet cable in the corridor (thankfully not connected to anything) which exploded into a ball of white light and a big crack. I was sat with my door open right as the ball of lightening came out the end of the cable 3m away; it was blinding and a bit of a shock.”
