    Yeah the ground pin was burned but that doesn't mean the surge came from the ground side- you see electricity flows from positive to negative so the culmination of a power surge will generally show up at the ground (because that's a short circuit when that much power reaches the ground without a justifiable load in between)

    Either way I'm glad your up and running now.
