With a BOOM and a CRASH and a big FLASH...

Yes, I've been offline for a few days. On Wednesday night lightning hit in our backyard. Power didn't go out, but phone service and internet access did. The phones are repaired, and the answering machine was fried, but the DSL that we use for Internet access is still out and we have no explanation. The service tech comes out to our house on Monday. For now, I have escaped the craziness of home for a little while with my ancient laptop to use the wireless network at a local eatery.

So...we all survived the storm, and the one the next night, too. I'll be back -- and tell more of our Dark and Stormy night -- later.
