The issue last summer was before the alarm even came into play. The alarm is connected to the phone line of course to contact the central if it goes off, but besides that it doesn't use the line (if not it would use it constantly).

My line has come back btw, again about 24 hours after the last storm. I think PhotoJim's theory of Perhaps a vibration from nearby thunder caused an intermittent connection to fail
might be correct. We need to have videotron come to our place in a few months anyways so I'll try to deal with this issue until then. It's just baffling. I'm also going to try another corded phone that I will bring back from work to see if its not my phone wire (it's really a hassle with the one I have at home to check) that could be defective as well. I'm willing to try anything at this point....
