The world came to an end yesterday

My Internet service went out yesterday and I've been banging on my high-chair. Thankfully, the whole apartment building is affected and it's not just my computer. They said they'd have it fixed sometime today, but I'm not holding my breath. I think it was the high winds and blowing snow that did it.

You'd think that the Internet people would be prepared for high winds and blowing snow. I mean, what city is this? It's Chicago. It's not as though high winds and blowing snow are an extraordinary event.

It's horrible not having Internet access! Just horrible. I couldn't check the weather to see when it would abate. I couldn't check my usual blogs to keep up with you guys. By the way, how did we get anywhere before Mapquest? I could soon be wandering aimlessly all over Chicago if I don't get my Internet back soon.

What's worse is that I use a broadband phone service which is really, really cool until the broadband goes kaputt. My cell phone doesn't get any reception in this apartment building. None do. I tried them all. If I go on the roof to make a phone call, I might get blown away.

I'm at work now, using company time to post this. Let's all say a prayer that Internet service is restored by the time I get home. It may get ugly, otherwise.

I feel your pain. I HATE when that happens. Bang away on that high chair and then throw your baba across the room just so we know how mad you are.
