Our internet provider had a major outage recently. No warning. No explanation.
I suspect one of the construction crews accidentally cut a fiber-optic cable. We have lots of roadwork and new home construction going on around us. The city is encroaching on our quiet little community.
No power, we’re used to that but having power without internet—that was weird.
All was not lost though.
I had never tossed our DVD/VCR player or favorite DVDs and VHS tapes in any of my downsize purge frenzies.
We had options.
We spent a very enjoyable evening watching one of our favorite DVD movies from 2001, Moulin Rouge starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
After the movie, we headed to bed to read. Normally we say, “One more episode. It’s not too late.” and end up staying up too late to read.
Not a bad day overall.
One day without internet was a nice break, but no internet at all? No thank you.
