Back On The Grid

Thanks for the various emails and comments on the blog while I was operating in emergency mode. If you read the storm damage reports from Thursday night-Friday morning, you can see that damage and power outages were widespread. Over the past couple of days, I checked in with email using Gmail Mobile and occasionally peeked at Google Reader on my Nokia N73. Didn’t do much else because there wasn’t much opportunity. Also, at least on Friday, mobile phone signal was pretty spotty as both Cingular and T-Mobile suffered damage to their networks in the storms.

Meanwhile, life in this neck of the woods is slowly returning to normal, though it will take me a bit to get caught up. Hopefully the next time something like this happens, we will have a generator installed. We’re scheduled to talk to a company about that very thing this week.
