Pandemic Journal, Day 587

We had just started watching last night’s SNL when the power went out. Not surprising given the weather, but still annoying.

Our UPS made it through an hour, and then it gave up, but all was well because we had phones with 5G service, so we ordered dinner from Negeen Persian Restaurant through DoorDash. It was delicious, as always, but as I started to post the photo of our mandatory candlelight dinner, we lost cell service – I guess the tower’s battery gave up.

I took the phone out of automatic carrier selection and it found a T-Mobile signal – who knows how long it’ll stay up?

Not long enough – it failed before I could post this. So we got in the car and drove over to Shir Hadash, which has power, to camp on their network.

It’s like living in pioneer days!
