Granny, reporting in from the library with an update on the WIFI situation. The RV park, where I was receiving a connection, has pulled the plug. They had planned on putting in a WIFI tower, but so far it only holds a big inflated Santa and no antenna. In the meantime, another company has come in offering broadband service, which was activated on Saturday. By the time I contacted them on Monday, they had already reached their limit and must purchase another (larger) plan. I get an excellent signal, but no connection. It was supposed to be remedied by today, but so far....let's just say I'm not holding my breath.
There really isn't much to tell you about the gardening situation. Our temperature plunged to 25F the other night, but it doesn't look as though I lost anything. But nothing is growing right now, just little sprouts, sitting there looking at me. The leaf miners are still rampant on the tomato plants, even though I've practically denuded them of leaves. Mr. H still watches the temperature and carries them in and out as needed, but I'm beginning to wonder if we'll ever get a ripe tomato. If not, it won't be for lack of trying!
We had a much needed rainstorm last night. The desert is terribly dry, it was short more than 4" of rain for the season, so the storm was welcome. The wind, not so much. Luckily we didn't suffer any wind damage, but it got awfully loud.
Thank you to my daughter, Amy, for keeping a link between us. Since this library is only open two days a week, she might have to continue to be my go-between for a while. She can publish comments for me, and she calls me each evening to read what you've written. I miss our interaction, but realize it's only a temporary setback. Now that I have a local libray card and wireless access, I will at least be able to blog weekly.
