Last Night’s Storms Took Out My Internet Connection

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.

What fun.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. We feel pretty darn lucky! We only lost power for about 45 minutes last night and about 5 minutes this afternoon.

    Internet aside, it’s a miserable time to have no AC.

  2. Ohhh, back to the days without internet! One thing I don’t understand, how can wireless be broken down? No cables…
