Silence is Deafening

We had a big thunderstorm blow through a couple of hours ago. That didn't wake me up at all, but the silence when the power went off did. I got up and turned off both a/c's and laid back down. Approx an hour and a half later I heard my transfer switch "thunk" and then got up and turned the a/c's back on.

And now with a cup in hand and the internet up, Life is back to Normal.

Amazing all the white noise that you get used to and the big difference when it's not there. Glad you did not have any blown fuses or worse.

I have an RTA (Real Time Analyzer) app on my phone. You can see in real time all the ambient sound across the hearing spectrum. It's very disturbing to have the ambient noise disappear in an instant.

For lack of background noise, you should join us at SWMBO's site.


Birdsong - occasionally

We can use 'indoor voices' to communicate up to 20'


You can't put a price on that!

Happened to us the other night here at home. The power went out at 1230 AM and I`m used to a fan blowing. The silence was indeed deafening.

Yep, I paid about $250 for a good hand held RTA 15 years ago and the free phone one is just as good.
