I'm finally back after that Friday storm knocked out my cable so I had no internet. I'm very luck as many people a few blocks from me and around the town have no power and it won't be back on until Wed. I am definitely counting my blessing. The storm roared through here on Friday, my lights flickered on and off all day with the fierce winds but we didn't get as much snow as I thought we would get. Again, we were lucky because just north of us they got between 12 and 18 inches (that's where my son and my daughter live). I kept myself busy and although I missed everyone here I really didn't miss the internet as much as I thought I would. Yes, it's convenient but being away from the computer was a nice little break. However, not having tv to watch was harder. Since my cable has my phone, internet and cable when it went out it took all three. I just wanted to check in and say hello and see if I've missed anything. Did I?

Did you lose power too, or just cable? We lost power two times, then just cable. but lights still flickered off and on for about 3 hours. I've been coming on mylot less, over the last month, and I feel much happier that way. But still love to come check in on some people daily.

We just lost cable but our electrics stayed on so I was able to do everything except use the phone, internet or watch tv. I managed to get a lot done without being on the computer especially reading which I love and never seem to find time lately. Glad you're doing well and that you're still checking in here even if you don't spend as much time as you used to. Being here can be addictive
