Thunderstorm Blowing In

I was on my iPad when it lost contact. I looked out and the sky is completely overcast and almost dark. I thought my power had gone off but I turned on the TV and it’s working. Now I hear thunder. I came out on the deck and rain is already falling . I’m on my cell phone now and still don’t know why my iPad lost power. It’s been so hot I’ve wished for rain but not a thunderstorm.

We used to get in the car and ride during a thunderstorm. I liked watching the lightning flash and hear the thunder roll. Haven’t done that in a long time.

We've missed all the major storms the past few days. It's cooler here now. It will heat up again next week.

We've got cloud cover but the forecast says we won't get rain tonight. Maybe tomorrow. I hope you figure out what's going on with your iPad.

@wolfgirl569 It shouldn’t bother me but when my power goes out everything is on hold until it comes back on. No IC no lights, noTV, no computer, no phone. No reading.

Rain is so much better than thunderstorms but unfortunately we don't get to pick. Might your ipad have run out of juice?

No! It was charged. I think it might have been a blink in the internet service.

@RubyHawk interesting that happened maybe the internet blinked off for a moment when the storm showed up but was reconnected by the time you checked your other device.

Keep safe Ruby. I am horrified of thunderstorms. I remember sleeping on the kitchen instead of my room because I was scared of it.

Weird about the iPad. Did it lose power or just an Internet connection?

@oahuwriter It isn’t the electricity. I think it was a blimp on the internet.

I don't mind a thunderstorm if I'm at home, but that doesn't help all the others out driving in it.
