Catching Up After The Storm

5 August 2003

There are tales to be told about the storm that hit Memphis. With power restored last evening, we didn’t get a reliable cable modem connection until late today. Then, there were the 4000+ emails that needed to be purged of 3400 sickening slices of spam.

Trust me, regular entries will resume soon. I read a lot by flashlight during the outage. We have a great deal to learn in this country about disaster preparedness and executing a disaster plan. More importantly, we sit on a rather fragile infrastructure that isn’t getting enough maintenance, and it isn’t getting replaced by newer technology at any rate that makes sense. Think rotten telephone poles where underground conduits ought to be.

More later – please stay tuned. Please?
