Being Offline

After a week of being offline, we are finally reconnected!  Last week was the week of storms in our little corner of the world.  Monday July 4th brought torrential downpours and thunderstorms just before fireworks time.  But, we kept our power & our Internet service.  Then, on Wednesday we had another powerful storm that lasted several hours in the afternoon.  We lost power for 3 1/2 hours and our cable Internet went out -- well, it was knocked out.  Lightning struck in our neighborhood ... bounced off our garage door (our son-in-law was in the garage at the time & saw it) ... and knocked out the cable box in our driveway.  Power came back on ... no one affected or hurt ... no Internet --- until today.

I've kept a check on my emails from my Blackberry, but had not set up the mobile blogging ... completed now though.  I've missed "meeting" some new friends in my blogging world, but am looking forward to catching now.  So, thank you friends for your comments and follows ... Granny has just been offline for a little while.  Hopefully we're back up & running again!

More exciting news from Granny & Granddad to come this week!

Glad you're back up and running.

It's amazing how one part of the country is having storms such as yours and our area is so very dry and hot.
