Frustrating day!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
We have had thunder storms every day for the past almost week here. Every afternoon it heats up really awful, humidity skyhigh, and BOOM! Well, yesterday, the power was knocked out for about 5 hours........then today, all day, it keeps going on and off. I keep resetting the clocks, tv's, rebooting the puter, and ZAP, it goes off again! GRRRR!
Hope everyone else has/is having a better Sunday!

Well, I did have a better Sunday than you though earlier this week it did that to us here..... Thought it fried BF's computer even though we have battery back-ups on everything in the house. Somehow the new battery we got for his backup is already dead!!! I hope that yourdays ahead are much better than today!!!

Sounds like you're getting what just came through Tennessee! Ugh. And its constant rain... and haze.... and drizzle... and HUMIDITY!!! To the point where it is hard to breathe. And be advised... more rain is on the way. We had a nice sunny day today and well... looks like another week of rain. So much for getting a tan before I start work on the 25th.

I had to go to a cookout this afternoon - talk about fun - 88 degrees with 90% humidity - then a rainstorm which made it good and steamy.

We had a snow storm last spring that did the power on-power off. Getting the home network to work right was a major irritation. (and my husband was out of town and we were mainly communicating by instant messaging). By the time I got everything going again, power was off just long enough to reset everything.

So I can sympathize.

We've also been experience the t-storm madness here in VA. Last night we had a good one too, and the power went out here. Unfortunately since we just moved into our house we did not have flashlights handy. thankfully our power came back within an hour. Let's keep thinking sunny thoughts and maybe the rain will go away!

I have a generator that will run everything except the 220 stuff, water heater, AC, etc, and sometimes I will crank it up and run it for an hour or so, or until the bad stuff passes.

I have a switched sonalert (noisemaker) wired in above the main switch in the breaker box, so when I run the generator, I have the sonalert switch turned "on", and of course, since it gets its power from above the main, it stays silent, because I have the main turned off while the generator is running, but when the outside power comes back on, then the sonalert starts squalling, letting me know it's time to stop the generator and flip the main breaker switch back on.

If the storm is intermittent, I will often just turn the sonalert off and run the generator until the bad stuff passes.

My wife, Betty, and I joke about us being the only house at night with any lights, and we say someone is going to knock on our door and they will have an extension cord in their hand and will ask to borrow a "plug" of electricity.
