Intermittent Internet

My Internet service keeps disappearing. That makes it hard to post on a regular schedule. Fortunately, the grid has held steady.

Some areas got hit really hard by the storm. Friends just a few miles from me were told it would be at least 17 days before they get their power back. Roads and bridges have been washed out.

In spite of the storms, I almost have my new water supply line completely buried. My grub hoe broke before we could finish the last bit of trenching. My buddy is going to weld it up for me.

I was able to make all the connections so that's set. I'd better post this now while I've still got a connection.

  1. Yea, same story with the internet here in Scarborough. Splotchy on and off. I am pretty sure it has to do with the power issues and folks suddenly coming on line after having no connection for a three days and they are overwhelming the system.

    1. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Things seem to settled down now that more people have power.

  2. This is a little off-course, but recently the two women sailors stranded at sea for 4 months had an "EPIRB" but didn't use it! Those were two very odd females, you'd think with the standing rigging they could have tied up some kind of or part of a sail. They definitely should not try this again.

    1. So much of their story makes no sense at all.

      I see so many sailors that totally lose their rig in a storm,yet they manage to lash something up and sail to safety.

  3. Got slammed eh?
    Now is the time to thank your younger self for being smart enough to plan ahead for such emergencies.

    Best of luck my man but you will have to excuse me if I don't worry excessively about you not having grid power for a short while.
    I'm pretty sure you will be OK there.
    Throw another log in the stove for me.

    Best wishes for a speedy repair crew to come your way.

    1. We didn't suffer, as you might expect. Our property suffered very little damage. We got lucky.

  4. And here we are in GA having a heat wave! Good luck with power and water line.

    1. It actually feels like fall weather, finally. We could do with less rain right now, as the rivers are still high.
