When the Internet Went Down — 2 Comments

  1. My land line and wi-fi which I get from Frontier Communications here in western Washington (state) have been out since Tuesday morning. When I called them they couldn’t even send anyone out until this coming Monday (a week). Then I discovered that my cell phone needed charging and the charger was missing following a trip out of town a couple of days before. I remembered that when I lived in Crestone (Colorado) any kind of communication or mechanical breakdown was typically blamed on Mercury being in Retrograd (this only makes “sense” if you know anything about astrology!) So I called my sister and asked her to look up Mercury–and sure enough! Mercury is in retrograde from April 9th until May 3rd. I just laughed and laughed! So then I went out the next day and bought another charger–and just as I predicted–as soon as I got home and hooked up my almost-dead phone–I found the other charger–which I had plugged in in a new place which was out of sight as well as out of mind. Sigh. At least I now have a car charger which I needed to have anyway. But interesting to note the correlations of others with Mercury!
