Yes, that's right. To the literally tens of visitors I get per month, I'm back. My internet connection finally came back up some time this evening. Eight days without teh innernets is enough to drive a man crazy. I have some things to write about regarding our large and relatively up-to-prediction level wind storm. Aside from my relatively short period without electricity (48 hours) and my long-assed time without internet (eight days), my only very close encounter with a near disaster is the little Cedar which came crashing down in my neighbors yard, missing their house and more importantly, my fence by only a few feet.
