We experienced two power outages on Friday evening. They were relatively minor, lasting less than 30 minutes combined. However, when the first one hit our network went down as well. We had been without an internet connection for approximately eight and a half hours when I gave up and went to bed at 2:30 this morning. There is a chance for afternoon thunderstorms in the forecast for both today and tomorrow, but hopefully we will be spared a repeat of Friday's inconvenience.
