Wow! We’ve had very high winds since Thursday. The storm took out our internet connection. This is the second time this week we’ve been out of touch. I really notice it right now because of all the work I’m doing to fight the implementation of the draft proposal for the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). Fortunately after only about 36 hours our local phone repair guys Charlie and Steve just got it working again. They said there were a lot of downed trees and lines. I send a big thanks to the two of them!
I feel fortunate because I just spoke someone in NY who also lost their internet to high winds. They mentioned that a neighbor of theirs lost a barn to the storm and the barn back side blew off hitting a horse and another horse got hit by a blown down tree. Nasty. We lost some trees but no serious damage or injuries so I’m counting my blessings.
