is it safe to wash clothes when it's lightning?

Recommended Posts

When I was a kid we had a TV ruined by lightening. My husband had a computer ruined by lightening when we lived in Alabama years ago.


I've never heard of a washing machine or dryer being ruined by lightening.


It would be interesting to hear if anyone else has had one damaged by lightening.

As soon as I turned off the computer, we had a constant steady stream of lightning and a REAL downpour of rain. I waited for that to pass before I turned on anything. The electricity kept blinking off and on for a while, so I guess it still would have taken just as long for the laundry to get done if I hadn't waited. :)

I get so weary with all the tornado warnings, severe storms, etc.
