Folks, sorry for the silence today. The storms that everyone is talking about today seems to have hit my ISP rather hard. I have Verizon DSL at home, and that's been down since about 4am.
And so has the rest of Verizon. From what I've heard, Verizon Wireless also went down today (in our area at least) and the storms even grapped up my landline. It even took down my backup web connection (Panera Bread); they apparently use a Verizon DSL Business account (or possibly Fios).
Panera seems to have gotten their service restored, so I'm not completely cut off. But it comes close.
