Serial Monitor stops working randomly

I’ve tried to search for this issue and found a lot of people are having the a similar problem, unfortunately the replies are not in “Explain Like I’m 5 Years Old” format.
I’m running a simple analog temperature sensor writing data to a SD card shield, randomly the serial monitor will stop displaying the data and the TX light stops flashing, although the Arduino is actually still running and logging to the SD card fine.
Is there a solution or can I use another app to monitor that’s more stable?
Using Mac OSX.
Here’s the code I’ve used:

#include <SD.h>


#include <Wire.h>
#include "RTClib.h"

// A simple data logger for the Arduino analog pins

// how many milliseconds between grabbing data and logging it. 1000 ms is once a second
#define LOG_INTERVAL  1000 // mills between entries (reduce to take more/faster data)

// how many milliseconds before writing the logged data permanently to disk
// set it to the LOG_INTERVAL to write each time (safest)
// set it to 10*LOG_INTERVAL to write all data every 10 datareads, you could lose up to 
// the last 10 reads if power is lost but it uses less power and is much faster!
#define SYNC_INTERVAL 60000 // mills between calls to flush() - to write data to the card
uint32_t syncTime = 0; // time of last sync()

#define ECHO_TO_SERIAL   1 // echo data to serial port
#define WAIT_TO_START    0 // Wait for serial input in setup()

// the digital pins that connect to the LEDs
#define redLEDpin 2
#define greenLEDpin 3

// The analog pins that connect to the sensors
//#define photocellPin 0           // analog 0
#define tempPin 1                // analog 1
#define BANDGAPREF 14            // special indicator that we want to measure the bandgap

#define aref_voltage 3.3         // we tie 3.3V to ARef and measure it with a multimeter!
#define bandgap_voltage 1.1      // this is not super guaranteed but its not -too- off

RTC_DS1307 RTC; // define the Real Time Clock object

// for the data logging shield, we use digital pin 10 for the SD cs line
const int chipSelect = 10;

// the logging file
File logfile;

void error(char *str)

  Serial.print("error: ");

  for (uint8_t i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
    filename[6] = i/10 + '0';
    filename[7] = i%10 + '0';
    if (! SD.exists(filename)) {
      // only open a new file if it doesn't exist
      logfile = SD.open(filename, FILE_WRITE); 
      break;  // leave the loop!
    }
  }
