Saturday morning, long before dawn, lightning struck close to my house. The flash was so bright that it awakened me, and the thunder crash that instantly followed it shook the house. I discovered after daylight that I had no internet; later in the day, I found that none of my phones were working; and one of my printers no longer prints.
Sunday, I found out that my laptop could still connect to the internet through the wi-fi system that apparently was not damaged. I finally figured out how to use data copied onto a thumb drive to connect to my blog and post.
My apologies for the prolonged silence. Now that I’ve determined a way to resume, I’ll be posting regularly again.
