We're baaaaaaack. Back online, that is. It's been a week since we've had internet connection and I must admit, I have mixed emotions about the fact that I've missed access to the "world wide web" as much as I have. No newspaper, no TV, no internet - it's a strange kind of isolation.
But today, even though the U of Iowa has cancelled classes and there's a travel advisory due to the ice storm, a rep from "Qwest" arrived at our doorstep to connect us to the rest of the world. It's good to be back.
