Mother Nature Takes A Hand

One of the pleasant (or not, depending on one's point of view) things about spending one's summers in the the Blue Ridge Mountains are the afternoon thunderstorms that we experience several times each week.

The Good: The rain brings delightfully cooler temperatures.

The Bad: The wind and lightening often cause unpleasant surprises.

Wednesday afternoon, we had "one of those severe storms" that, for reasons known only to Southern Bell, caused the loss of our telephone communications and, consequently, the loss of our mind numbingly slow dial-up service. (Here in the deep woods, there's nothing else.)

By Saturday evening, phone service had been restored.

It's great to be back.
