Is shit going down?
A storm just passed by here in Central Illinois, and my wifi went out. Then broadband went out. Then texting, then the phones and answering systems on two different numbers acted up with terrible connection, and the 'leave your message' was all jacked. I'm on broadband now, and can type on my phone, but see in the upper corner, there is zero signal right now from a broadband tower across the parking lot, let alone wifi. I see the indicator showing nothing now, but has gone from 4g, to G, to 3g, to E e, and now nothing again. I got in here and was able to start a thread in the few seconds I had 4g. I'll just have to wait a while to post. Called spouse at major hospital in Peoria, and all cables out there. Woop, showing 4g, better hit post while I can. I will check back when I can. Damn, waited too long. I'm going to hover over post button until I see it. Wifi still out.rabbit ears work, and all local channels coming in. Still have zero g service. 10:02 central am is when this started.

Anybody else having issues? I can't see all these issues related to a storm, when in the past, there have been much worse, with trees down, etc, and has never affected broadband.

Just looked at your storm on radar..That's the one that's headed straight for me .. I'll be back on tonight to let you know what I experienced. It's supposed to get here 6:30 east coast time.

How was the wind and temperature drop?

Wow. I read through my family's history. Three families, related and settled the same area, and an inordinate amount of them were killed by lightning striking them. I mean more than 10 or 15 different people, between these 3 related families were killed this way.

It seems pretty high. But maybe in the 1800s and early 1900s, it was more common?

I’ve never had lightning strike that close. All the tall trees around a it hit a bush about 4ft tall amongst 30 ft trees.

Yes those straight line winds may be rough. On the radar that line of storms looks like a half a state wide evil smile. All red on my radar.Be safe.
