After my husband left for work yesterday...

...I received a call from his boss telling him not to come in because all communications were down. This is IBM, all communications are never down.They have backups for their backups. I thought 'Whatthehell?', but called Daiv and told him to just come home, so home he came. He actually was able to work from here, just not from the job site.

Turns out it was sabotage, AT&T underground cable lines were cut just south of here-- fairly close to where that little earthquake was last week or whenever & to where IBM is -- and everything went...llandlines, cell phones, 911, police and fire stations, even hospitals. They sent firemen to the tops of the hills to watch out for fires!! The hospitals had to use runners to carry messages from room to room. The south valley -- Santa Clara countiy which is us -- Santa Cruz and San Benito counties were all affected.

This is messed up.

On-the-other-hand, it's been raining for two days and there's just nothing so beautiful. Water!!!
