Wifi, wherefore art thou?

I am currently sitting in the parking lot between a Starbucks and a (very busy, I might add) McDonalds in home of finding a wifi signal. I have a ton of work to do today, but no internet at home and flickering power.

Around 10am I announced I was off in search of wifi signal. We have no cell service at our house without wifi, so I couldn’t even use a hotspot.

As I drove down the road towards the Mcdonalds, I noticed things were different. In the storm this morning, power had been knocked out and everything was dark, including the restaurant and the streetlights. After parking for a moment, I realized I’d have to move up the highway to the next exit.

I parked and set up my equipment–laptop, iPad and notebook–and couldn’t find a signal. So now I’m on my personal hotspot in the parking lot sitting rather uncomfortably in my front seat.

I was about to head home when I realized I should stop and write this post, just in case I do not get internet back today. It is the last day, after all.

So before I head home, I want to say “thank you” to everyone who participated in the SOL challenge this year. I honestly don’t know if I would have made it through this month without your posts and without your comments on my posts.

This one thing has kept me grounded, given me at least one tiny bit of consistency for the past three weeks and I am going to miss it and you all.

Thank you again! Best of luck as we all struggle together yet apart during these weird and uncertain times.

    That's a resourceful teacher right there. I'm not even sure where'd go if our Internet went out. Our cell coverage is spotty at best, so we'd be on the road, up out of the valley to get ourselves in a place where we can make a phone call without it dropping! Technology, ain't it grand?? LOL! 🙂

    Good luck to you in where your career takes you. You'll always be an educator, no matter the title you carry! ♥️

    I'll echo everyone else's sentiment: stay safe and well (and snake free)
