For the last few days we’ve had thunderstorms, hail, and lots of rain. Y’all haven’t seen the effects on our somewhat beta-mode internet connection, but let me tell you: it’s as water-shy as a ten year-old boy avoiding the tub.
Every time the connection goes out, I fret about the unmoderated comments that lie waiting as the result of this intermittent summer Sturm und Drang. Each time — so far — the connection is restored and I breathe a sigh of relief. But with this accumulation, I fret. Will this current level of rain (probably three inches, plus hail, in the last twelve hours or so) finally so waterlog the phone company’s internet system out here in the wilds that it drowns entirely? Who knows for sure? Certainly not the phone company.
At any rate, letting you know that we might get clobbered eases the strain.
Yes, we’re still grateful for the rain. It hasn’t moved over into monsoon proportions as it has in Texas. Every event is worse/better in Texas. Which is why Texans are Texans…outsized and entertaining.
Put your umbrella by the door…
