I don’t usually use the Internet to kvetch, but after 6 weeks of smoke that had me wearing a mask, I now am reduced to dialup.  We lost on electricity on Tue. night because of the strongest thunderstorm I have ever witnessed.  The walls on the house shook.  Rapid lightening strikes eventually took out a transformer around the corner.  I talked to some of the repairmen sitting in a truck.  They could not do anything until someone came to tell them which transformer is out.

I told them that I could show it to them.  It goes out frequently.  15 minutes later, they drove way.  Finally, after continual promises that a fix was coming in 2 hours, we finally got electricity back on Wed. night, only to find out that our DSL was kaput.

AT&T has been giving us the same runaround as PG&E.  One call promised that a technician would come by 8 tonight, but another said that we have our “appointment” between 8 am and 8 pm on Wed.
