The low-hanging cords hanging from the power pole across the street due to the flopped over access pole atop our house have been a worry for some time. Those lines hold our lifeline…. THE INTERNET.
And sure enough, some guy not paying close enough attention drove by and SNAP.
So we’ve been without internet (again). Needless to say, it’s back up. We’ve got a temporary fix, which involves a new line wrapped a half dozen times around a tree in the front yard to try and get enough lift, and we’ll lose it again when the access is repaired (today? tomorrow? sometime this week?) and the phone company needs to come out AGAIN to do a permanent fix.
This storm is just the gift that keeps on giving, ye gods.
