Our internet connection failed last Wednesday morning. Jeff came out and had to install a new microwave antenna. It is mounted on the highest point, on top of our chicken feed tower. It also happened to be very cold, especially up 20+ feet in the air.
Our phones and internet access come with this link to the outside world. We are only 3 miles from the freeway but there is no DSL, we might as well be in the boonies. If the internet connection goes down all the phone calls come directly to my cell phone so hopefully everyone who wanted to managed to contact us.
