On the inside looking out this morning since rain has thwarted my walking efforts. While I enjoy my daily walk, I could not muster any enthusiasm to walk in the rain in the 83% humidity. Did it rain last night at midnight or thereafter? I never heard it. This morning I arose at my usual time and was sitting eating breakfast, switching back and forth between WWJ and WJR news, and distinctly heard two different weathermen say that rain was expected late morning. Great, I thought – I can get a walk in. While sipping my coffee I heard the sky open up and it started pouring – back to meteorology school both of you! Well, I’m already up, so why not write a short post and maybe get back to my chart for work for an hour or so before I get up Buddy. Yesterday I was working on a huge chart with lots of names and lots of numbers … really alot of numbers, and I told myself I needed a little break to rest my eyes. Some telepathic communication with cyberspace must have happened then because when I opened my eyes a minute later, poof … my internet connection was gone. Now, I sometimes momentarily lose my connection at work and have to log in again, but this was my own internet connection. DOWN. I stared at the yellow shield, hovered my mouse over those dreaded words “no internet” but nothing would revive it. Sigh. I closed the lid and went down the hall, had a snack, came back – still down. Called Comcast to see if there was an area outage – nothing; asked for a signal boost – nothing. Called my boss to tell him my lifeline to the office was kaput. Well, I’m no computer maven, but based on past experience, I pulled all six plugs for my modem and router, counted out two minutes, held my breath … voila!!! Nice to be back in biz and the chart was there waiting for me. Perhaps it was a celestial thing. Why not blame it on the blue moon? That blue moon should have been around last Friday night for the eve of the Woodward Dream Cruise. Now talk about a missed opportunity!!
