So, around 6:20pm yesterday, the power starts flickering. I move my new 5port switch from the power strip to the UPS. Sometime during this, I hear this loud clap of thunder. Look outside, and it's sunny. No storms out there. Must be a fluke. A few minutes later, I see lightning reflected off my wall, and hear a tremendous thunderclap. Look outside again, and there are mammoth amounts of wind and rain. Totally out of nowhere! I don't think any trees went down, but lots of big branches did. Power goes out and stays that way until I decide to go to sleep at 9pm. Fifteen minutes later, it's back.
And that's the story of the lamne 3 hour power outage from yesterday.
