Earlier today we had a power surge.
I noticed only because my computer screen changed slightly and then the garage door opened on it's own. Which really freaked me out.
After the dog and I checked it out and verified nothing malicious was going on. I figured I should accuse our neighbor of pulling a prank on me but he wasn't around. It was then that I realized our Internet service was out and put the pieces together.
Fortunately with today's technology, I was able to get online with my smart phone and check for known outages. Nothing was listed.
So I made this tweet.
Thanks Qwest. I do appreciate it.
