First lightning damage of 2017… Not something we celebrate…

We are rapidly approaching that time of year.  Unfortunately we already have a taste of the damage spring storms can cause.  The antenna on the top of this tower took voltage and cooked all of the radios on it.  The cap of the top antenna was about 45′ away from the tower.  It had a hole in it that looked like a torched bite mark.  Due to the prevailing winds for the following 2 days, we were not able to get these folks back online til the third day following the storm.  This is not normal for us (Thankfully!!), and hopefully will not be repeated anytime soon!

Thanks for your patience!  Thanks also for the opportunity to serve you!
