Lightning- Not Again!

You may remember that in February of 2006, our phone line was struck by lightning, and we had to repair or replace most of our electronic items and telephones. We promptly signed up for the electric company’s surge protection program and installed everything as directed (I think!).

Well, the old saying about lightning not striking twice in the same place may still be true– this time, it zapped the cable pedestal out in the woods, and fried my modem and printer, among other things. And of course there’s no internet access!

In the spirit of make-do, I’m standing outside in the neighbor’s yard, my laptop propped on their trampoline, with their dogs happily “helping” me. Their wireless network seems to be working just fine! The only downside is that it’s sprinkled on and off all day, and another shower is imminent. I guess I’d better take my office back inside!

The point of all this is to say that I may not be able to answer e-mails as promptly as usual, but I will definitely do so as I can. I will also be downloading and sending out orders regularly, so things should go on pretty much as normal. I’ll take the uninterrupted writing time to write on the literature curriculum, so those of you who are patiently waiting for the beta version can rejoice!

    Sounds adventurous…at least that’s what my son would say.

    Oh Janice!!!

    I recently helped my mom move and forgot that though she enjoys email, that she doesn’t consider internet access on the same level as water and electricity! Over 3 days I had one 45 minute session at a local library – yikes! I feel for you.

    OTOH, you are looking at the potential silver lining. I hope you make great strides on your project. Undistracted time can be a good thing!
