How desperate can I get?

Well, we'll just see. I am sitting outside at 7,000 feet elevation. It is sunny. It is 48 degrees. Why am I sitting outside? Yesterday Mark and I came up to Lakeview Cottages to continue closing up for winter. Last weekend it rained incessantly. Which actually had its nice moments. We couldn't be outside painting, so we were inside our cozy little cabin with friends...drinking wine. During the weekend the rain came down even more, along with over a thousand lightning strikes in the area. Lakeview Cottages? Hmmm. Why can't I get on the internet? Ah....because apparently our phone line was fried by lightning. Okay. Calling the phone company. What is that you say? You have 140 repair tickets ahead of us? Really? You probably won't get to us any time soon? Really????

And that is why I'm sitting on the porch outside of the kitchen at Keola Camp next door to us. Because their phone line did not get fried....and I'm apparently addicted to technology.

Off season. Wacky weather. I welcome your sympathy because I'm sure a lot of you can identify with my addiction to technology need for communication with all my bloggy friends.

I think I'd welcome that lack of internet access. Well, for maybe an hour or two. :)

Wacky weather here, too. Currently 83°... might make a record high!

At least you have electricity... enjoy the sewing! ;)

Wacky weather is preventing us from enjoying a true fall experience! How could one person really go to the pumpkin patch when it is 85 degrees outside?

I can relate!!! Strange weather we had this week, wasn't it?

Sounds like a crazy storm! I get this same way when I go to my parents' cottage in northern Wisconsin. Their house is behind a bluff, so no Internet or cell service. We get so desperate that we often go into town and surf in the grocery store parking lot! Hang in there!

I hope they get your phone line fixed while you are still there. It is pathetic how reliant we get on technology, but I love it, too!
