February 16 - No Internet!

NOTE:  I am posting this a day late, because we had no internet service from Monday evening until Wednesday.   How awful to be without internet!  Who would have thought we could become so tied to it!

My biggest accomplishment today was getting the laundry all done.  I also got my unpacking done.  And I was able to get caught up on the computer stuff - at least until the internet went out in the afternoon.  Fortunately, we had power, so I could work on my power point presentation for Wednesday's meeting.  I think I have that about as ready as I can get it.

It gets remarkable difficult to know what to do when there is no internet.  I couldn't even watch my TV shows, since they stream from the wi-fi.  Fortunately, it was late enough in the day that I managed to fill my time.  I even cooked a real dinner.  Bill probably wishes the internet would go out more often!

In the evening, our power went out.  It is freezing rain and trees and lines are going down all over.  We rarely lose power, because the lines are buried, but somewhere further up the trunk line must have had wires come down.  So, we had candles all over the place.  I climbed in bed to read my kindle, which has a battery light attached to it.  But after a couple of hours, it all came back on.  It will be interesting to see what things look like in the morning.
