Hmmm. Maybe I ought to get a plug-in clock from a charity shop just for stuff like this for a bit until I'm relatively sure everything's okay? The microwave and the CD player seem to be okay, and those are the only things that have clocks in them...

It is the clock that stops or has the wrong time that tells you the power has been interrupted. A split second outage may not tell you anything. A clock that is normal tells nothing except the time. It is just something that may give you a clue.

Well, I figured a digital one might flash at least. I really hope it's not the converter and that it's just a momentary power failure...

Our power in the USA runs at the 60 cycles rate,, Any imbalance will make battery chargers or inverters buzz or hum more than normal as its trying to digest a square wave an not a normal sine wave.. Just my guess.
