Pop Goes The TV

Today I hauled out things to the dumpster to make room for crates as I fill them. Unfortunately the TV will be going out with everything. As I was busy emptying the front hall of things, I heard a snap. I stopped what I was doing and checked the living room to see where the noise came from. I couldn't see anything amiss, so I turned to go back to what I was doing. As I turned, there was a crackling noise, followed by a loud pop and smoke started rising out from the back of the TV set as the screen went blank. I hurried over and unplugged it from the surge protector. Good thing there isn't anything on TV tonight I must see. Oh well, one less thing that I have to haul with me down to Florida.
