I was just getting to have more free time to online and now the weather had changed. It seems like, my area is going to be hit with heavy rain and thunderstorm now. I think i need to leave Mylot until the thunderstorm is away. I don't want my internet connection being hit by the thunderstorm. Have you experiencing this sudden interruption recently? Hope to see you all later. Have a nice day...

Sorry to hear that the weather is not behaving by you. It is actually a nice day here today and no sign of rain. I guess we take turns around the world and sadly today in your part it is your bad day. We will see you when you get back and hope that you are all safe.

Yup, same case here. The connection somehow becomes bad whenever it rains. So, what do you usually do when you're free and can't come online?

When it was raining heavily with thunderstorm, i will read magazines. Sometimes, i will even tell story to my son based on the books which i had bought. Or even i will do some spring cleaning, if i am bored with reading. How about you, Jlyn?

My kids are older now, so I don't have to read to them anymore. Sometimes we would watch a movie together or do some bible studies together.

Then you are more relax than me now, since your kids are older. If my son, he prefer i watch cartoon films with him. So, it is quite fun to be able to watch cartoon once in awhile, so can feel young again...

Sorry to hear about the bad weather in your place my friend.Yeah, most of the time if there is heavy rain most probably the electricity will be cut off as a precautionary measures just in case and not to mention too the interference it may cause to our internet connection if ever there is electricity.The probability of accident if followed by thunderstorm.I also stop using my computer if there is thunderstorm with rain.Hope the rain stop soon so you can continue your mylotting.

Yes, that heavy rain with thunderstorm only lasted for 2 hours. I continue to online after that, after having my dinner. It is good to see my internet connection was still doing fine. Yes, on safety it is good to shutdown all electrical items during heavy rain and thunderstorm.

I'm glad to hear that the heavy rain in your place only lasted for two hours.As the weather bulletin says there's no treat of any typhoon the whole week,and because it's rainy season that just normal.It's good your back in no time.

What I really enjoy doing when it rains is sleeping. I would like to just wrap myself up warm and just sleep. But that is not always the case all the time.

I guess that is what responsibility is all about. May be you should do what my friend does and that is they switch off the lights and that makes the child have to sleep.

Hi myfb! I hope the weather there is fine now. I sometimes experience interruption in my internet connection but it's mostly because of the network's problem. Sometimes if there is a typhoon, internet will still be up.

Yes, the internet is always fine although it is heavy rain with thunder. Only it is too risky to online while there is thunderstorm. Because there had been a few cases, where their modem and computer being hit by thunder and gone.

Wow that's dangerous. I had a broadband before that uses antenna installed on top of our roof. During those times, I don't use the internet when there's a thunderstorm.

Hi, myfb2009. Well, this past Saturday, we had a thunderstorm at night. This seems to be only the time that we usually will have a thunderstorm anyway. I hope that you are okay now and that you were not so affected by the thunderstorm at all. Take care of yourself and stay safe!

Hi Cream, sometimes we do have thunderstorm at midnight that my son suddenly wake-up by its sound. It was very loud that makes my son very scared and run to my bed and sleep together with us on that night. Recently, here started to rain every evening. But luckily no thunderstorm accompanied it, or else i won't be able to online anymore.

We've been very lucky since we've lived in this house because in the three and a half years that we've owned the house, the electricity has only been knocked out once. When that happened, we were lucky because it was during the night and our electronics were not on. However, I do have everything hooked up through a surge strip and battery backup so I really don't worry about a storm hitting my connections.

That's very good that you had everything getting stand-by in case the storm is coming your way. At least, it won't cause any dangerous matter happening to your home and family.

It has been a while since we have had a thunderstorm. We were having them often for a couple of months. We are supposed to get some scattered storms this week. I turn off the electronics during storms too.

Yes, it is always wise to turn off and unplug all your electrical equipments away from their source. It is just too risky to bare with the lightening and thunderstorm...We don;t wan to lose our beloved electrical equipment into it...

Hi mybf: Og that's really sad. It has sometimes happened and I fee a little bit frustrated because I'd lose a special time that I dedicated to the site. I try to do another activity that would be important for me to avoid the feeling that I'm losing my time. Unfortunetly you can't control these situations. ALVARO
@myfb2009 (8304)

Yes, you are right. We can't control these kind of situations. What we can do is, try to online as much as we can while the weather is fine. When the weather is bad, we can do our other offline activity. So, we won't feel bored...

So far my internet connection has never been interrupted by bad weather. Unless there should be a black out and that's another thing.

That's very good connection. Since i use land-line, i do experienced less internet connection problem, too. Except when it is heavy rain with thunderstorm, so decided to switch off my connection. Because a few of my friends experienced their modem and computer being hit by lightening.

I do unplug my laptop when there is heavy lightening, although it does not interrupt my connection. I had my other laptop damaged once during a snow storm that had thunder and lightening.

Yes, it is very dangerous to connect to internet while it is heavy rain with lightening. Many of my friends had their modem or computer being hit by lightning. So, i prefer not to take the risk...

The weather at my place is sunny at the moment, but some weeks ago there was heavy rain and thunder. We were on our way home when it started and when we reached our house we ran all the way to the door to get inside as soon as possible. The thunder storm lasted for a long time, and I didn't want to use the internet during that kind of weather, so I read my book instead. My husband and I were afraid that some of the water would end up in our basement, but fortuneately it didn't happen.

You are lucky that now the weather in your area is fine. As for my area here, it seems like every afternoon is raining. Only it is good that not everyday have thunderstorm, otherwise you won't see me in Mylot. It is good to hear your basement is free from water. Otherwise, how are you going to solve that problem.

It kept looking like rain all day long here but all we got were a few sprinkles and that was it. I'm glad though because we often lose power.

It is good to know at least nothing serious happened at your area. As for my area here, recently there are almost everyday we are having raining season. most of the time, it is not heavy. Only on occasion that it will rains with thunderstorm as well.

yes myfb, the internet connection is getting bad even if there is a cloudly environment. I dont know whether it is because of dampness made in the cable or anything else but you will definitly lose half of your bandwidth and if you are a usb modem user then you will lose the entire signal and that would be a disaster
@myfb2009 (8304)

Are you a broadband user? I think that's depend on the location where you are living. I always have problem receiving my signal when i am using broadband before. Because my home is far away from the station that is sending the signal to my broadband modem. After i switched to using fix cable line, my internet speed is never bad accept when there is maintenance.

Same here, it had been nearly 2 weeks here had been raining cats and dogs in the afternoon. Usually, it will start raining in the afternoon. Only sometimes, it will rains in the evening. But at least the weather is cool after that, not as hot as a few months ago...

I have been online before and didn't even know there was a storm near by. Never had a problem. WHen I know there is a storm I do go offline. Haven't had any weird weather recently. Been about 95 on average daily. I hope it continues. Next month we have some bad weather. Cheyenne Autuman and all as we usually have.

You seems having a much worse internet connection at this moment. Have you tried to contact your internet provider, to help you check whether is there any problem with your connection. Hope you will be able to solve your internet connection problem soon.

Yeah, I certainly understand you. The weather has been pretty disturbing these days. Just about every evening, heavy rain comes together wuth the thunderstorm. I turn off the TV and the computer too when the thunderstorm comes. I am afraid that the lightenings would hit the cable connectios. That can be very dangerous.
