Is there a way to get historical data logged during a power outage?

During a thunderstorm we had a power outage. The display appears to have stayed up while on battery power and logged rainfall and other sensor data, but on myAcurite the data is logged before the outage and then a straight line leading up to when power came back on.
Is there a way to get the data logged to the display during the outage to show online?

Put a UPS on your bridge, router, and modem...that's all you can do. The trend data is sent to the bridge as a push. Once the data is pushed, the next data is queued up. If the push happens and there's no bridge to receive it (because the power is out), it's on to the next data

lol...it is all on a UPS. I just don't have 3.5 hours of coverage.
It just seems like it should be able to queue data up for a while. Otherwise what is the point of the display and sensors having their own battery backup?
I suspect most of us aren't trying to log data for the calm sunny days, but if I am going to lose everything during the strong storms I am interested just because I lose power that sucks.

Is there at least a way to get that data from the display on to my local PC?

get a bigger ups?! :)  Kidding aside - the battery backup on the sensors isn't to store the data - it's actually to run the device...first they run off solar but at night they run off batteries. AS far as getting data to you local PC I believe you would need to have a display that utilizes the PC Connect function to do that.  Take a look around at the forums for the raspberry pi option as well - I'm running something similar using SOAP to read the stream, parse it in PHP, and push to a MySQL database.  It's slow....but it works well

I am using the PC connect function currently, but I will look into the raspberry pi option. I have a feeling that will work better for me anyway in the long run.
Thanks
