After the recent ice storm in the north east, many people were without power for a few days, many still don't have it. While we never lost power, we were without access to the internets for part of three whole days. This is the part where you are expecting me to say something about how liberating it was not to check email and not keep up with RSS feeds and how I read a book and cooked and saw the sunshine and fulfilled a dream.
Bull$#!+. Now I can finally do all that crap and still check my email.
