Staying Grounded on Groundhog Day: No Toasters in the Tub Please

Groundhog Day! A wonderful time of year. Ski and snowboarding season is still at full throttle. Yet, the whispers of spring are just around the corner.

Not to mention, a reminder of one of our favorite movies of all time, Groundhog Day. A classic film with Bill Murray that came out 25 years ago in 1993. Where did that time go? If you are not familiar with this timeless treasure, do yourself a favor and watch it soon. Being Groundhog Day, no time better than the present.

Groundhog Day: A Shocking Experience 

Well, Groundhog Day is also a perfect time to kick off our series on staying grounded with ground cords and ground straps. In other words, keeping safe. Always remember safety first.Groundhog

A toaster in the tub? Of course, not a good idea. Water and electricity are typically not friendly to each other (understatement of the day). As a matter of fact, any electrical device in the tub will be a shocking experience. Not in a pleasant way though.

Electrical currents love to travel, fast. The human body does not serve well as a carrier of electric currents. Wires, on the other hand, they LOVE electrical currents flowing through them. Think of all of the many benefits that electrical currents offer.

Electrical currents keep our homes warm, rooms lit with proper lighting, refrigerators running, microwaves heating and…well….you get the idea. The device that you are reading this with has wires inside that are tidily tucked away out of harm’s way.

No plans for the weekend? No problem. Make a nice cup of hot chocolate. Grab milk out of the fridge, mix with cocoa and heat up on the stove. Throw a bag of popcorn in the microwave. Settle in for a Winter night with Bill Murray and Groundhog Day on your TV or tablet. It is a great day to appreciate ALL of the electricity flowing safely through your home keeping you warm, nourished and entertained.

Lastly, just remember, spring is just around the corner. The Groundhog says so.
