Today, I've decided that one of my very most favorite things are green lights across the board on my DSL modem.
(My apologies for the blurry picture. It turns out that green lights are rather hard to photograph--at least for me.)
You see, yesterday I didn't have green lights across the board and I had no internet access. A storm came through during the night. It wasn't bad. We live in Nevada after all; not the Midwest (at least for a little bit longer). Nevertheless, it affected my service. I cannot tell you what 24 hours without my blog friends, email, access to banking, and the news can do to a person. When I know I'm going to be without service, I prepare. However, when it's imposed by external events..., well let's just say it's ugly.
