We have to replace the transformer due to lightning

I’ve heard the old saying that lightning never strikes in the same place twice, although I can say that is an absolute lie.

When you live in a place with more than a million flashes of lightning every year, lightning is bound to strike the same place twice, and I live in a state that is one of the only places in the country to have more lightning than Kansas.

One of the reasons is due to the rising heat and moving sea breeze. These multiple things together are a combination for lightning strikes, however last year lightning struck a transformer near my home and my family and I were without power for 5 days. It took a long time to upgrade the Transformer due to storms. The lightning happened to strike while in a storm plus the electrical contractors couldn’t touch the transformer until it wasn’t raining anymore, however during that time the two of us didn’t have any power to the house plus I thought about getting a generator. I contacted a licensed electrician to get a quote for a generator. I didn’t know how much money it was going to cost and I didn’t even know what size of a generator I would need. Luckily, the licensed electrician gave me a lot of ideas! He spoke with me about whole house generators plus smaller generators that would be able to help while in an emergency. The electrician gave me a lot of information and I wanted to know about all of those points before I made a decision to spend thousands of dollars.
