Our power was out pretty much all night. Then this morning we have had power surges and brown out. It's been like a light show with light going on and off and diming. Very concerned about our appliances and electronics. What is going on? Almost every time we have wind or rain our power goes out. But this time is't just a nice calm rain. Why does this keep happening?
