Joules Jolt

J is for Joules.

During a recent thunderstorm, a jolt of joules jostled electrical devices, over-juicing them and turning them into junk. (lightning photo credit: Eric @ Musings of a Wandering Physicist.)
A modem became defunct, possibly receiving its jolt through the telephone jack.  Was that just? 
A TV satellite dish became jostled, jamming all signals. 
Fixing it was a jumbo job for the repairman. 
And the auto sprinkler controls were jangled.
Jeez. Janitor Janie in(j)eniously ordered a new one.
Would she jabber her complaints, in(j)est mint juleps, or become jealous of those with working appliances while despairing at the jambalaya of joule-induced injustices? 
No, she made jest and hoped for jubilation when the repair jobs were done.

  18. Electricity is ubiquitous, in obvious and more subtle ways. We run on it, or so they tell me, and so does my computer ... that I believe. It's a mysterious force.
