It is amazing how reliant you get on internet access. Over the weekend a few things happened with our family and the need to communicate and send messages. I realized that I have become dependent on being able to either just pick up a phone or have some type of communication.
Because of the location where we were the cell signal is weak. If you go outside you are ok, however in a rainstorm it is a bit difficult to go outside and have a conversation.
In the end I was able to get the wifi back up (we get wifi from a very long distance repeater – high wind can cause some interference). Used a few tools to forward calls and in the end my favorite google voice to make a few calls.
The difficult part was anticipation of not having WiFi and missing the worldcup games on Saturday. (Thank you ESPN3)
I take technology for granted. As much as I would love to say that I could get along fine without some forms of technology I would struggle.
