Sound like Goofyxgrid is down and out of commission until further notice

I do not know what I deserve for all this. Durring standard update on servers which I was planning, I had a power surge and lost about 70% of all equipment I have got.
By Monday I am going to check everything and estimate the losses. At the moment it is very hard to tell me when I will be back online. I am sure that my database server lost 6 out of 8 disks, 1x PSU, 1xCPU and some RAM. The project server lost the motherboard, cpu, ram, psu. Regarding other losses, my main computer (psu, ram, mobo, cpu ... whole PC), 3x monitor, 2x ups, 2x odroid-xu4 and 2x psu in my storage (drives connected to electricity are spinning so maybe I can save them). It's not worth mentioning about such boulevards as lighting or 8x fans.

I am particularly surprised by the fact that no protections that an electrician made me last year didn't worked <- which are ordered before and after the ups. The electrician will check what has happened today or tomorrow.

I will only be estimating the losses, but last year's wall collapse and flooding had less impact than now.
If anyone knows the cause from where I have such a fate, I would really like to know.

If it wasn't for bad luck, he would have no luck at all!

If you have a telephone line connected to any piece of equipment (not so common these days), get rid of it. They are the most vulnerable to lightning strikes, if that is what caused the surge.

After a strike that took out some minor equipment (a phone, modem and home network gear) several years ago, I put surge protectors on all my equipment and disconnected all phone lines. The series-type surge protectors are the good ones, not the shunt varistor type on the power strips that can do more harm than good by merely shunting the surge onto the ground conductor rather that blocking it entirely.
