Vandals took knives and axes to our Shaw Internet service and cut the main fibre-optic line affecting service to our city, this past Friday or Saturday. We've been in internet darkness ever since. The story made the local radio and TV news. Service was finally restored to our home last evening.
To add insult to injury, we also depend on Shaw for our home telephone service and yes, service was cut off too. Thankfully we have cell phone service which allowed us to stay in touch.
Finally caught up on blogs from the past few days. I was able to check email by using my iPhone with satellite. Great feature to have when there is no other way to communicate.

With our Internet connection back we'll be able to catch up with the many bloggers who are presently - or soon to be - on the road towards the sunnier and warmer climes of the southern US and Mexico.
Thanks for dropping by.
