Passed

Last night I wasn't quite quick enough shutting the computer down when the thunderstorm began, and a power outage shut it down for me. The machine seems none the worse for the experience (which is not saying much) but there is now a Windows\system32\cmd.exe window popping up every time it boots. As nothing else happened last night, I'm assuming the power surge set it off. Annoying, but easily ignored.

The thunderstorm lasted a couple of hours, but was much diminished after the first half hour. There has been occasional thunder grumbling in the mountains since, but nothing nearby. The rain was intense for a while, but tapered off and was over by morning. This afternoon there was a brief sun shower at the same time the damp roof began steaming from the sudden warmth of the emerging sun. The excitement is probably over now, and the cool weather with it. It's going to get hot tomorrow and hotter still over the weekend. All of next week is apt to be hot, too, with respite only at night. Summer is upon us.

So far I've heard nothing of any fires being started by the storm, but it sometimes takes a day or two for them to get going. I'll keep compulsively sniffing the air until I know for sure.
