Thunderstorms are entertaining, provided the electricity doesn't go out. I have surge suppressors on the electronic stuff, but not UPS on everything. So it means resetting a bunch of digital clocks around the place, and the HP printer has to be paired back with my partner's computer (my own computer is hard-wired to it, not WiFi like his, and so is immediately available again after power interruptions).
And our home entertainment center goes out of kilter somehow, the external speakers losing connection with the TV, which is a big hassle to restore. I have to go through like 10 levels of menu on the TV screen, not something I do everyday nor remember well from previous times.
So thunderstorms can be fun to watch, but can come at a price. Whenever we come home and I see the microwave and oven clocks in the kitchen flashing I know we've had a power interruption for some reason, and a big job ahead of me.
