My crash was unrelated to a power failure.  We have lots of those in this part 
of California (Humboldt County) but this was on a laptop.  It was just a 
crash that forced me to reboot, then the machine would not start properly.

Thanks for the info about UPS's.  I will start looking around and I will be 
sure to buy one before the rains start in October.
