We've been having a lot of electrical storms here as well. I bring it all down when this happens. No need to risk loosing any equipment. They usually speed by in an hour or so and I'm back up and folding. The one nice thing about where I am right now is that I'm on the same circuit as the church up the street. The church is a storm shelter so they get immediate attention when the power is off. When Hugo came through here 12 or so years ago, most of Columbia was without power for 3-5 days. This house had power within hours of daybreak the next morning. Where I was living at the time we were without for about 2 weeks.
