I am very sorry to hear that happend Fritz. In fact, my house was struck by lightning last night. I wasn't going to bring it up, but with what happened to you, I guess I will.
Around 12:30am, my wife and I awoke to the worst sound I have ever heard - lightning had struck the house.
The electricity was out, and both smoke detectors were going off. I seriously thought the house was about to explode. Hairs were standing on my arms, and both my wife and I had very bad headaches and felt really dizzy. Both dogs were freaking out. It sounded like a freaking train had crashed into a mountain!
Luckily there doesn't seem to be any electrical damage though, everything seems to be working. We already have someone coming out next week to work on damage to our house from a hail storm in February, so this is weird timing. There is a weird shaped black mark on the roof right above our bedroom. The way our subdivision is structured, we had to drive two streets down and look with binoculars to see it. Freaking scary.
Hope you are able to get things squared away soon, and glad you're alright. Where do you live? I live in St. Louis.
