about twice a week then is right back on. It is so annoying. I've finally learned I need to immediately change the digital clocks, especially the one in my bedroom or I'll be in bed and notice it and have to get back up.

I wish I knew if it happens all over the area or just my house. The house on one side is vacant and the lady in the other one doesn't speak English.

Ours used to go out every time we had a heavy rain.

We also had a heavy root pushing on the wires and that caused weekly outages regardless of weather.

Call the electric utility, it may be tree branches on wires and the transformer resetting its self.

Maybe you have a bad neutral connection somewhere in your electric service panel, and sometimes when your heater blower motor is kicking on, your lights are dimming badly.

But, the lights don't dim. It's like someone turns a switch off, then instantly back on. Yesterday when it happened the computer didn't even have to boot up, it came back on right where it had been.
