Specifically, we're learning what happens when you leave town for a couple of days and come home to find that the winter weather knocked the power out and when the repair crew fixed it they left you with no power to half of the house and 220 coming out of the 110 outlets in the rest of the house.
It's not good.
Five days later, we're still trying to sort things out. The new modem came and I just got the internet connection back, but I'm out of scheduled posts, so I'll set up the linky party for Friday and try to be back to my regular schedule after Christmas.
We got lucky. If we'd been home when it happened, we would've probably lost both laptops and my sewing machine (not to mention the Kindles...and the portable gaming systems... and the phones...)
I did not have time for this!
