    I've never heard of that! So the power surge came through the ground to your house?

    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.
