Today will see a few showers ending this morning then cloudy. There is there is a risk of thunderstorms this morning. The high will be near 28C(82F).
Tonight will bring clearing and a low of 18C(64F)
------------------------------------------------- ---
Last night during a small thunderstorm we had a flicker in the electricity. It seems that every time that happens the local cable supplier 's equipment goes down from a power surge. When I called to report the problem I suggested that they install a surge protector or UPS on their equipment.
Both the Queen and me have A UPS and neither computer shut down.
With both the Internet and TV gone and being home alone I went to bed at 9:30.

Looks like some more rain is in your area.
I'm with you though, when the power goes out it is time to nap.
