Oh no, our Internet has been out for two whole days...
after a lightning strike from our last summer rain storm
disrupted service on our street and with our computers.
Getting up the house is silent, no blogging friends waiting
online to comment or connect with, no new comments to
send across the planet after reading new posts. I'm lost.
Even my husband who surfs the Internet daily looking
for a better boat to build is lost. We look at each other
like strangers in the night. Oh no, what do we do now?
Well, fate intercedes, but tech support is of no help despite
call after call. They have fixed it, they say. But it's not working.
So we go to a church picnic in the mountains and socialize.
Talk to real people-what a fun change, connecting to
neighbors. Life does go on without the Internet even
when you are both addicted, but it tries your patience.
Luckily today a tech guy was sent to our door to try to fix it,
and he did-earning our never ending gratitude. Once again
we are plugged back into the "real" world of emails and surfing.
