Slow Geth sync and Prysm errors after power outage

After power outage Geth is syncing hellishly slow. It might take weeks or months at this speed. On the top of that, Prysm started giving errors. Could you please look at the log file
and tell if something could or should be done here? Thank you!

Geth has historically been really bad at disaster recovery, although they recently released an update (1.11.0) that was supposed to use a new more robust database. It looks like upstream version 1.11.1 just hit the Dappstore 5 days ago. So you might consider downloading that. Although you may need to delete your Geth database and resync to benefit from the new database.

You also might just consider trying Nethermind, my current favorite.
