have power today, but the Internet is still unavailable.
I can write but I cannot publish.
Yesterday the high winds took down a dead tree beside our drive, no damages. Also the top 25 feet of a 50 foot pine came down, in the front yard. The loss of part of the pine tree was a complete surprise, and luckily there was no one was hurt and no property was damaged. We are waiting for the hydro crews to arrive, as only they can disentangle the tree from the power lines. Since many people are still without power, we don't expect to see a crew here until next year!
When the power went down our telephone line went with it. When I finally reached a repair agent at the telephone company, service agent Sandy told me that no one else was experiencing any problems and arranged for a repair person to visit Tuesday morning, to investigate the problem. Trouble is, when Attila went to work today he found out that NO ONE has telephone service, the problem is community wide. So, I then had to spend almost half an hour waiting on hold, on our cell phone, to talk to a telephone service agent again, in order to cancel the repair service visit.
I dread needing to contact the land line telephone company, for any reason.
A very quiet day!

Warm and safe, as much as one can expect when public services are not available.
