I had something similar 2 weeks ago, i live in Australia though.
I was sitting here as i do, it wasn't raining.. but had been raining on and off (strange rain.. from that little burst we had 2 weeks back.) at about
12ish midday i felt a thump or air pressure, my light went dim, wasn't enough of a surge to reboot the PC but enough to almost fully dim a 45W desk
lamp. and more suspiciously It took my wireless mouse out. The Mouse is fine now, I went straight for an old fixed cable one but was reluctant to try
the mouse again for a few days. I had run through all the possible fixes, but it wasn't communicating at all on the bandwidth it uses. As i said,
it's totally fine now.
The one thing i really did notice, is that i noticed the air change.. the cables and lines out here are old and having a blackout or brownout during
even a light wind is common. this.. was something else entirely.
I'm going to go with some freak weather thing, charged air or something. There was also an added bonus of a grass *feature* like some crazy mini crop
circle in the grass outside my window, looked like a mini whirlywind landed there for a second.. i don't know.. Grass wasn't flat it was.. well it
had a circular flow to the *indent* And it wasn't there before the thump, as i had had a conversation about "gee.. need to mow that" at about
11am.. it's well mowed now.
Probably some strange ball lightning thing, caught up in a mini whirlywind.. barley missing the wall in which i sit.. fun times
