A couple of days ago, our Aquila-supplied electricity "blinked" off for about two seconds. This was enough to send our Dish TV receiver searching for signals, and to make my computer reboot itself in a highly unhealthy manner. No harm done there, though.
But the electric LED clock/timer on my gas range stayed dark. Cliff tried unplugging it and plugging it back in. Nothing. "Must have spiked and burnt it up," was his assessment.
I don't leave my printer on all the time. So when I turned it on yesterday to use it, lo and behold, it wasn't getting any juice either. Dead as a mackerel.
So I figured that little "spike" got the printer, too.
I awoke at 2 A.M. to see the clock beside my bed blinking. Way to go, Aquila. Now what have you done?
As I sleepily headed through the kitchen to the bathroom (a trek I will no longer have to make once we're moved because there's a bathroom WITH the bedroom), I noticed the timer/clock light on my stove was blinking. HUH? I thought it was dead!
When I got up this morning I set the clock and it worked just fine. Out of curiosity, I walked over and turned on the printer. It lit up and growled at me, ready to print.
Just one of those things that make you go hmmmm.
