Hi Lisa, the cold is normal when it rains for a long time (lots of rain cooling the air plus no sun to warm it up.) Even in the summer it can get pretty cool in our drafty house by day 2 or 3 of a slow pass-by of a hurricane. Right now it's 69.7°F at my back yard. During hurricane pass-bys I haven't seen less than 70°F.
Of course if the wind comes up then you have some wind chill to deal with...
Sometime today the rain should start tapering off and be done by late tomorrow. It's taking a break right now, but I'm pretty sure we are not done with rain today yet.
Those frequent power outages like last last night happen often in the summer also. A small battery back-up (UPS) for my computer is really handy then to have time to check the weather and stay in touch via the message board. You need to plug your Telmex modem into the UPS also. Luckily the local Telmex building here in La Manz that splits out all of our DSL lines has a good battery bank and/or generator. Even during Hurricane Jova in 2011, the Telmex DSL service stayed up for over 24 hrs of our 33-hr power outage.
