On last Thursday morning, at 02:30, in the middle of a huge storm the electricity was lost. So was the telephone and the internet.
The electricity was restored at 04:30 on Friday, the telephone later in the morning but no internet.
Finally, the internet was restored at 21:00 last night, too late to do anything useful.
So that explains the absence of yours truly over the last three days. Hopefully, if it remains on there will be a normal post at midnight tonight. All times are Pacific Time.
It was a huge storm with about 6 inches of snow.
