No Internet No Phone No Cable

I spent all of the morning and early afternoon without any internet. Since we have VOIP and cable all through the same cable modem, those services were absent as well. A major storm hit last night, with wind gusts up to 100kmh. Things are quiet today, but the aftermath will have people scrambling for days. At least I live in the middle of the city. In the suburbs, power outages and other problems will persist.

The weather was very bad last night. The walls were shaking and I thought that it was appropriate that I was reading the Book of Revelation. Last night, we watched a bit of Mad Max. It was a dubbed version, and not because it was in French. We watched it on Showcase and it was dubbed with American accents. That really made the movie not as interesting as before. The voiceover artists reminded me of some really old kung fu movie dubs.
