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.
To make things worse, we switched to streaming from the same provider so we had no Netflix or Amazon Prime. No series to binge after dinner. We found ourselves thrust back to pre-internet days.
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.
Watching their love story made me want to write a romance novel titled “Come What May.”
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.
How ironic, my internet provider has been having major issues too. I guess if I lived without a computer for 40+ years I could live without again. Heck, I’m one of those rare people that don’t have a cell phone.
Hope you get your internet back. Mine is very spotty even with VPN on.
Sometimes I wish I didn’t have so much technology myself! Sorry, you’ve been having internet issues too, Crystal.
It’s amazing how times have changed. Now we are sure there is a whole world out there going forward without us. We lose our internet periodically. Last time was for a whole month. It took me days to clean up my email. And yes… the world did move forward without us.
Simple days and simple times were good. We would survive a world without technology. We did. :-)
