Well, if you didn't hear yet, we had a bit of excitement here in Nashville on Christmas morning - an intentional bombing from an RV parked on historic Second Avenue downtown. Everyone I know is fine - there were only three injuries reported for reasons we won't go into here (you can read them on CNN!) but because it happened right across the street from the AT&T hub, internet, email and phone service (and TV!!!) are all totally disrupted and we don't know when it will be restored to any semblance of normalcy. I am writing this from a local MacDonalds - the only place I could find internet service at all - but I don't know how easy it will be to get back, or if the service will be reliable enough to hit again later in the week.
So in the meantime, bless your lucky stars if your e-services are working properly and say a prayer for me, stuck inside and remembering how to turn on my own lights (Alexa has spoiled me mightily!)
If I don't see you before then (heaven forbid!) have a happy and safe New Year's Eve celebration!
