The Return of the Internet

Some of you may have noticed that it has been a VERY long time since I posted in my tiny corner of the internet.  I promise, there was a valid reason. Michigan (and other places in the US) got hit with a crazy amount of snow over the last two weeks.

This picture was taken AFTER an entire foot of snow had melted.

So, the first snowstorm hits us and we lose our internet.  Three days go by and nobody can get to the house to fix it because of said snowstorm. Finally, after five days of no internet someone makes it to our house.  Voila!  Internet is fixed…for less than twenty-four hours.  The second wave of snowstorms hit at this point causing a violent loss of power. Our modem became completely fried because of the outages.  Nowhere on the island sells modems so we had to have one shipped in.  It’s been two weeks and we are still waiting…and waiting…and waiting.

Thankfully, a kind person on the island managed to dig up an extra modem for us to borrow until ours finally arrives. We are THANKFUL for the kindness of strangers.

Your turn…Were you effected by the snowstorms at all?
