We had a terrific lightening storm blow through our area on Friday afternoon with a strike close enough to our house to blow out the cable, phone and internet. We don’t miss the phone ringing because most of our land line calls are either from telemarketers or reminders of upcoming doctor appointments. But no TV and Internet reached epic levels of frustration when my husband couldn’t watch “The Football Game of the Year” for Iowa State and Iowa fans Saturday evening. Thank heavens one of neighbors wasn’t affected so he was able to see our beloved Iowa State Cyclones loose the big intrastate rivalry with the Iowa Hawkeyes. Well there is always next year.
I didn’t think about the fact that I wouldn’t be able to post a photo to my Monochrome Monday blog until yesterday morning. All my photos are stored on portable hard drives with access through my laptop. Not to be undone I decided to get creative and took a few photos around the house with my iPad. Converting one to Mono was simple and “Bing Bang” on to writing a new post! Thank heavens for all the satellite towers out there that keep our mobile devices working. Oh, and keep your fingers crossed we are back in full service by Tuesday evening. 😊
