Snow, Snow, Snow

We’ve had nothing but snow here for the past week or so, and it’s been plaguing my internet connection, though to be fair it was messed up before the snow even thought about visiting.

A few months ago we had a huge hurricane here and ever since our internet has been sporadic at best, the snow isn’t helping…come to think of it, neither is our interent provider….but that’s for another day.

Here we’re having a problem because it’s not just snowing on the damaged cables, but we have a constant cycle of snowing, freezing, warming up, and melting.  The wires aren’t happy about it, which makes me not happy about it because on my bad days I can’t distract myself with websites, and on my good days I can’t shotgun zombies in the face Left 4 Dead style.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the snow.  I love it even when I’m shovelling it.  There are times here when you get up in the night and it’s snowing so silently you think you’re deaf, and the whole house is lit up from the white softness drifting from the sky.  It’s the best.  In a world where the wind never stops, you always notice when it does.  So it snows and snows and snows, and I love every second of it.

Until I try and log on.

And that’s my story for the day, hoping to be up and running properly soon.

Cheers!  –Cassie.
