It fried our underground cable and also took out our router and modem. We have cable phones, so that meant no internet or home phones. Our neighborhood is also in a dead zone, so cell phones won't work at our house. That meant we had to physically drive somewhere if we wanted make a call.

Have you ever considered how much your life would change if you had to give up the internet? Or perhaps you're not as dependent on it as we found ourselves. Do you remember when researching something meant going to the library or looking it up in encyclopedias? Does anyone still have a set of encyclopedias? The world certainly has changed in the last 25 years. It's hard to remember that we lived perfectly normal lives without all these modern day conveniences. (Having said that, I'm very glad to have the internet working again.)
I plan to be back tomorrow to share my Schnibbles quilt for the parade!
“Be generous: Invest in acts of charity. Charity yields high returns. Don't hoard your goods; spread them around. Be a blessing to others.”
