That is a bit strange with the phones dying.
I've had this occur twice. Last time was this week. My TV turned itself on, my digital box shut off and was hard to get back on, my microwave had no
time, so it must have gone off, but the clock on my stove didn't lose time, still showed, and in fact my stove shows 'PF' when there is a power
failure and it didn't have this. Must have been a surge, so not so abnormal I guess. But also, when this must have happened my cell phone batteries
went dead and I'd just charged it. I'd gone on a trip, and needed my phone on the road and couldn't use it, which caused us to get lost when we
arrived at our destination, because the numbers I needed to call were on my phone and I needed to use the phone to make calls and get directions to
who I was going to see. I had brought my car charger with me, so I thought no problem I'll use that, and the dam thing was suddenly broken, and it
was brand new. It's when I returned home I discoverd the TV and microwave problems, and other things were on that I could have sworn I turned off.
The first time though was odd because every single electrical item in my house went out, pitch black darkness, no lights on, and it lasted a few
minutes while I scrambled around looking for candles. But the microwave (different one) the time was still on, and it was the only thing left on. I
can see if there's a flicker some things might stay on, but it lasted a few minutes. I had to reset everything, except the microwave.
