Wide Net Down

I was all geared up for a good rant to our ISP. Fortunately I checked the news first and learned service is down all over the Tri-Cities area.

Thanks to my trusty phone I can check my email when there’s any signal at all. But today’s blog post shall remain pending for a while.

It’s a good day for a long walk!

“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” ” Matthew 11:28 (NLT)

  1. A long walk is good for dealing with frustration. Blog on.

  2. Our service isn’t out often, but when it is, we find it excruciating.

    • I understand that, Anne. Ours is a very poor signal or down often. At first this frustrated me to the point of, well, let’s move on… Soon enough I learned to work around it. Mostly I notice on the days it actually bothers me I was looking for something to vent on anyway. 😉 The phone service crashing at the same time can be a problem. That’s when I look forward to having a land line again.

  3. I so know what you mean. Ours is pretty reliable but not perfect enough to trust running my life.

    • Out here in the sticks I’ve learned to make the most of what we have, when we have it. Usually, I’m scheduled ahead, and got busted this weekend when even in town the net was down and out. They’ll figure it out soon. Meanwhile, I’m taking advantage of the down time.


  4. We have similar outages in New York City. Sometimes its the weather other times the actual providers are having problems. I find the Schedule Function on WordPress very handy. When the service is good I often plan posts in advance for both my blogs and schedule them to appear on certain days at certain times. This way I always have something in the pipeline. Hope this helps.


    • You are always helpful and insightful, Deborah. I used up my scheduled posts while I was away. Now I feel so far behind, like I’ll never catch up again. I’m ignoring that lie and pressing on. Be blessed, my friend!


Your thoughts matter to me. Of course I'd like to hear from you!
