My old elementary school which i still live down the street from used the usual mechanical bells outside except for one area which had a horn speaker but it still made a buzz at the same time as the bells. The indoor speakers were the usual grey square metal ones and there was a wall phone in each classroom.

One time during a summer thunderstorm a lightning struck the school and fried the bells and the alarm system too. All the bells, speakers and alarm were ringing 6 hours straight. They had to come and shut the power off to the school to stop it and make repairs.

The lightning also blasted all the roofed balls off the roof. I remember finding a black sooty deflated basket ball on the ground when i went to check it out.

We have an expression over here that sums this up nicely:

There are two kinds of light  -  the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.

Or, as you'll often hear us say when something has gone horribly wrong for the umpteenth time that day, Oh Crap Yet Again, usually abbreviated to 'OCYA'  Shocked Cheesy
