The guys wanted to put the dishes on the front of the house. Gulp. No way. I do not live in a mansion, but I thought it just was not a good idea!
We live "out there" but not so out there. DSL is 1/4 of a mile away. The report to us was, "No, never will be strung down your road." Okay...fine. We have a great high speed internet. I am very happy with it, however, when the clouds get heavy, guess what? No signal. The TV signal is a strong one. Normally we are under a tornado watch type of situation before we lose that puppy.
The forecast for the next several days includes heavy snow and possibly ice, through Wednesday A.M. . I looked at tonight's forecast online a bit ago, "Thickening and lowering clouds... ." Uh huh...that means no signal.
Dial up is another story. I can receive email, which means I stay in touch. When I receive an order, I can fill it, but there is not enough speed for the blog, website updates, or anything beyond email. So...we shall see.
Living in the country comes with its joys, and a few sacrifices, but I am very happy!
Today we are going to pick up some hay, grain, and a few other supplies, and then bunker in. I figure we will see warmer days in about 4 weeks, and I will definitely have that in mind! Spring is right around the bend! Perhaps I will get some more seed catalogs in the mail today!
