Did anyone else experience outages on July 4th?

I had several power outages that caused me to lose a day of stats. Also, two of my computers, including my feeder box, unexpectedly rebooted three times after power was restored.

Apparently it affected the daylight side of the earth the most.

Edit: Rereading that it looks strange. What I mean is that it affected the earth where daylight occurred.

Too many beers requiring cooling?

:joy: :joy: Good one. No. Not that reason.

I have seen some conspiracy messages that the new world order wanted to shut down the internet on July 4th.

Maybe it was an unsuccessful attempt :rofl:

what region do you live in?

Central North Carolina.

@jepolch I remembered reading about this solar flare on the 4th. I wonder if that had an effect? Did anyone else in your neighborhood have the same interupts?

1804 houses were without power and internet for several hours.

That happens at least once a year in rural Suffolk UK, usually due to high winds and lack of maintenance getting the better of the overhead power lines.
Working from home has the advantage that I can switch over to the generator.

I did switch on my generator. I have to live off the grid four or five times a year due to power outages. Lots of trees along narrow roads, overhead power lines.
