Here’s an apology to those who’ve tried to reach me by cell phone today… or have tried to have a conversation that lasted more than a few minutes. According to my carrier, the last cell phone call I made was “dropped” eight times! A couple of factors:

  • I’m typically in a “fringe” signal area even on a good day.  (The current problem is less severe in other areas).
  • Beginning last night, we’ve had some rather violent weather that included lightening strikes, power outages, and downed trees. (The good news is the river looks better and the grass is really green.)

I’m told that some eight cell phone towers in my service area suffered some damage starting last night… and the engineers expect to have everything “back to normal” within 24 hours. Your continued patience is appreciated.
