    So I'm watching this thunderstorm brewing overhead, and it hit me (no, not lightning. A thought hit me - which is even less likely!). Anyway, I realised I have no idea what to do when the sky fairies get the bliksem in and start zapping things.

    Generally I unplug TVs, PC, etc. What about the tank?

    What are the results of a direct tank hit? Dead tank?

    Thanks!

    It does happen from time and time and I have included my actual tank and equipment under my household insurance.

    There's a good idea! Gonna get a quote, can't be too expensive to include it.
