The DSL was DOA...

...until today. We were forced to huddle around my crackberry to get our internet fix for the day. The geeks at TDS sent us a new modem, I fixed a few wires that had come loose during a remodel, and voila', we're wired up again.

I am, as of this afternoon at 4:37 PM, officially sick and tired of winter. I never would complain about too much snow, especially in years past were the snow cover sucked big time. But now, I would like to state for the record, the blogosphere, and anyone else interested in my whining that I want no more snow. No more 23 below, no more icy roads, no more pushing stupid people out of their snowy tombs. Just this morning a couple Grumpy Samaritans helped push a guy off the sidewalk. I have no idea how fast he was going to clear the berm and end up high-centered with his front wheels on the sidewalk, but my guess is way too fast. Dope.

Snow snow, go away, snow again some other day. I want Spring. Crocuses. Snowdrops. Trout lilies, Pasque flowers, and green things. Most of all, I really could use a few good paddling days, it has been WAY too long.
