Electrical storm near your mast?

(Tries to sound technical. Fails)

sounds like an electrical surge

is it tv signal as in through a box

computers dont like it

i had this recently none of my remotes worked


spoke to ds and his had done the same the same time but a few streets away

unplug and then reconnect and see if it clears

Yes tv signal through box. Dp said he thought it was a surge. Most of the lights blew upstairs. I am on my mobile internet.

The wind is howling to add to the spookiness.

aww way to technical for me now. Mobile internet <<scratches head>>

Electrical storm is best guess. go to bed everything will be fine in morning!grin

there is quite a lot wrong with the downpipe when it rainshmm obviously not the rest of the time

its outside my window and it fills up and then must be partially blocked because there isd then a huge gurgle for 20 secs and then silence ad repeat ad nauseam till it stops raining

not exactly spooky but majorly asnnoying

of course it could be my Zombies that have escaped. grin
If it is you will need eels!

Mrs weasley internet on my mobile. I am in bed but the wind and rain are keeping me awake.

zippitippitoes Tue 02-Sep-08 01:06:06

well the gurgling would be keeping me awake but i have drunk half a big bottle of diet coke tho i am on a caffeine ban and predictably it has made me feell tense and jittery and no doubt sleepless

Has it settled down now?
I can just about send a text from my phone, never attempted to use the mumsnetting internet facility. grin

Mind you I can never get a phone signal on my phone anyway!

a storm, most likely.
