Today we had a few showers (I managed to get soaked on my bike ride to the office, and later, when I checked the radar, it didn’t even show any precipitation! A mystery cloud rained on me!), and now at night, as predicted, there are some quite heavy thunderstorms. The lights have flickered several times already, and at least once, my UPSes kicked in.
I don’t know how many times my UPSes have saved my computers and my work in the approximately 600 days I’ve had them. What I can say is that at a price of about $120, and therefore $2 a day, it has probably saved (some) of my sanity.
