On Up In Smoke:

Well I guess my mom is right. I was born under a dark star. This stuff only seems to happen to me.

While watching all the coverage about the flooding around the Wyoming
Valley my computer monitor started smoking.

It was unplugged and thrown out on the lawn, just before it was ready to burst into flame! The plastic casing was melting!

I sat at home for days while we were all under a state of emergency and couldn’t be out on the road to get to the store on the other side of the river. Only one bridge was open for days and that one was for emergencies.

So after some creative math I was able to get a replacement only because I found a clearance sale. A twenty inch screen for $49.00.

So, I am here to say, ‘I’m back again.’ I seem to be saying that a lot lately. Are the planets trying to tell me something?

Glad you were there to keep it from burning the house down what would have caused it?

Computer monitors are scary things when they decide that they've had enough! My last one gave a terrible mechanical ZAP! noise followed by a loud POP! and then the screen went bright white and then black... it scared the kitties and I nearly to death. I'm glad you are ok!
