Monday night a severe electrical storm hit the Charleston area.
Unfortunately, the Folbot plant suffered a pretty strong blast. Our phone system got fried, the data lines are down, computers have turned into doorstops, the AC is not working… and we are still discovering things that have been affected. A major surge protector/UPS unit got so badly damaged that the manufacturer told us it had “sacrificed itself” to protect some equipment (which it did — a great product, and still under warranty!).
Not surprisingly, all this has left us a bit hard to reach.
There are lots of people working on resolving the problems and we hope to be back in touch with the world soon. In the meantime, I’m headed out for a paddle.
