Back on line!

I'm so sad! We lost internet for TWO DAYS!!!! AAAAGGGHHHHH! I missed a whole bunch of photos and videos posted by the grandies. I kept wanting to look things up. I told my son-in-law on the phone. I almost expected him to send flowers, he knows how much we are online. Jennifer and her crew came and found the issue. It shorted out, the box filled with water.



So here we are. Feb. 19 vs. Feb. 22! It's almost the same shot, but not quite. We lot all that lovely snow. Today, Sunday, is sleety rain.


Thursday, I heard the first robins. Friday, Feb. 23 I spotted them. They overwintered last year, but they seemed to know it was a tougher winter this year.


The birds have been lovely. I must replace the suet.



Down in the wetland...it is REALLY wet! It has thawed and refrozen. It is very hard walking, I didn't venture down onto the meadow, even wearing my snazzy boots with the pics. I'm wondering how the pileated woodpecker is doing!

We drove to Almonte yesterday and took a county road home. So many driveways were so icy.

Yes, going offline is not fun. I frequently lose connection for a few minutes, and it is most frustrating. It just interrupts the flow of life, even those few minutes.

I saw flocks and flocks of robins here in Florida a couple of weeks ago and guessed they were heading north. Spring is coming!

it really shows us up, the internet going down...

We've had two days in a row of bright sun and blue skies. Frosty, but definitely a move towards spring! YAM xx

Well, a severed cable will shut down your internet. 99.9% of the time it's something else.

So glad you found the problem. Offline for 2 days is no fun.

The icy surfaces aren't fun to walk on. I've had to be very careful.

Wow, I've gone through computer withdrawal more than once because of all kinds of reasons, but never because a squirrel shorted out the connection. Glad you are back -- and I would have sent (virtual) flowers had I known, because it really does feel like part of you is missing when you are offline :>)

Nightmare time! " 2 days with no Internet would be devastating. Waht strange times we live in. By the way Jenn, pour hares are not rabbits. they would be most upset to be labelled as a "rabbit". Much more class - https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=s_IwHrRLoMc

Oh my! You have such a huge property. Wow! A squirrel? Good grief! I get very antsy when I lose internet connection. It's become such a necessary part of our lives.

American Robins do overwinter in Ontario far more frequently than they formerly did, but based on recent observations I think that genuine migrants are returning.
