And We're Back!

Electric, cable and Internet are back up and running! While the down time had nice moments - neighbors talking to each other, more walks, family games and creative ways of cooking out - life without power, especially the Internet, was getting tough by day 3.

This power outage made me realize how important the Internet has become to everyone. Seeing the long lines in the coffee shops with power and wi fi, to the unending almost frantic searches for outlets to charge lap tops once seated, to even the incredible restlessness I was starting to feel yesterday. Sure signs of Internet dependence.

Internet Dependence - maybe not quite a medical term, but possibly the makings of a new urban dictionary word.

At any rate, we are back and new posts are on the way!
