I guess your right. It appears that the relay DID loose the stable flag due to 
the power outage lasting the entire day unfortunately. Forgive me, but the time 
limit for keeping the stable flag does seem a little unforgiving, it should 
maybe be one day or so instead of one hour. I was just thinking about it 
because according to the relay Conesus list, 86% percent of relays have the 
stable flag, making it seem like an important flag to have to be considered 
useful. But it is what it is I guess.

You will lose the HSDir flag for 4 days. You might lose other flags.
I'm going to point you to the previous thread for an explanation.

The flags change every hour so clients to know how to use your relay.
You can't keep them all the time, and you shouldn't try.
(For example, Tor security updates are more important than flags.)
