I’m a hurricane watcher. I, like many Floridians, am fascinated by these storms and the fact that now you can watch them approaching (24/7) and can obsess about which path they will take.
This year is different, though. Two of my obsessions are colliding – obsessing over possible hurricane landfalls and being “prepared” (I can make a “home” out of matresses, water bottles and peanut butter in 28 minutes – or less!), and the horrific thought that I could lose internet connection – not just for moments, but for days!!!
So, I asked Byron if we could get a battery-powered charger for my laptop, he said that we could, but it wouldn’t help if we lost power. Apparently, the cable is somehow “married” to the electricity!!! I thought those electricity people were SMART. So then I asked if we could get a honkin’ generator that would power the cable lines…He said, “No, honey, we can’t.” (He said this with a kind of deflated voice – like he’s resigned himself to my “view of earth”) – He knows he’ll have to explain this to me again…because He knows that everything looks different
…from La-La Land!
Peace out, for now.
