Same here. Our house (Charlotte, NC) got a near miss two or three days ago. The flash and the noise were simultaneous. There was a pressure wave INSIDE the house. The power glitched and came back up. I have whole house surge protection but the OSPi lives in a Home Depot outdoor plastic case on the outside of the house. Its IP address vanished from my LAN. I just cut the power to it as it lives on its own breaker for a few seconds and it came back up again.

I think I was lucky this time.
