no power to the people

This morning I woke up to find my computer was off. That means the power went out over the course of the night. Again.

My power will go out at least once a month. During the summer it's twice a month. Each time it happens it's usually less than a minute. Does it bother me? It used to but now I'm accustomed to it.

It would be very easy for me to point the blame at Tampa Electric for this, however I really can't say that because I've seen similar outages all over Tampa Bay Florida.

Why does Tampa Bay have a lot of power outages? Easy answer: Lightning. Sometimes it's so dense that it has a strobe effect in the sky - something I've seen many times.

If there were, say, 500 lightning strikes from a single system, that's considered normal. If it goes up over 1,000, that's "a lot". Then there's the ridiculous when there are more than 4,000 recorded strikes from a single storm. In some areas of the state it can even get close to 10,000. Granted, it has to be a wallop of a storm to have that happen, but the point is it can happen here.

It's a good thing I find lightning cool. 🙂
