Wow! The wind is really blowing today. It keeps blowing hard enough to knock the power out for a couple seconds at a time. The power has been interrupted 3 times in the last half hour. I was watching a DVD movie, but after the power went out the second time, I decided to give up watching it for now. I no more finished selecting the correct chapter when the power went out again. I wouldn't mind so much if the power would stay off for a couple of minutes. That happens frequently around here. But when it is only off for a couple of seconds, it is very annoying.
I'm not too concerned using my laptop. It can survive on battery power and the phone line is powered by the phone company.
