Protect Your Electronics

20140705_165711

Living in the desert southwest, we get our share of glorious thunderstorms, aka monsoons, in the summer. They are one of Mother Nature’s most spectacular shows and I cherish the evenings I can sit on my covered patio and watch the lightning fill the sky with color and listen while the thunder echoes off the mountains.

These storms can also raise havoc with our electronics. So…unplug your sewing machines, sergers, irons, etc when you’re not using them in the summer. These toys  tools of ours are expensive to replace. I, for one, would not want to do so.

Yes, there’s another one coming and I have double checked that all my tools are no longer tethered to the wall. Perhaps an afternoon on the couch with one of my favorite quilting books is in order.

  1. Great recommendation. I try to unplug my long-arm all the time while not using it. And my DSM gets unplugged when storms are coming in or if I’ll be gone for more than a day or two. Sure, we’re insured. But the deductible is high enough not to risk it, especially when it’s so easy to manage this risk on my own.
