Last week was probably one of the worst weeks that I have had to deal with. Every day, there was an issue on why I couldn't upload anything or hardly was on at all.
It all started on Sunday of last week. My Comcast was acting up like crazy. I would be able to get onto the internet one minute, and then the next minute the internet would go out. It happened all day--literally all freaking day long. We called Comcast, and they said that they were doing maintenance, so it would be spotty and the problems should be resolved the next day. Monday happens, same issues happened---and this time, the whole house wasn't working. No TV, no internet, no landline phones. Nada, zip! We called Comcast again and told them the problem They said it could be the modem, and they would have to send a technician. They sent out a tech to fix the issue, which he put in an amplifier because he noticed we had a weak signal. He didn't say anything about the modem and left late at night. The Wednesday comes, the issue happens again. Called up Comcast for the 3rd time, and they said that they will send out another tech. Finally got the issue taken care of---all they had to do was put in a filter to the amplifier because the X1 platform gets info from other boxes. Apparently, the other tech didn't know that.
Soon as I think everything is going good, we get a string of sever thunderstorms that occurred for the next few days. Thursday, our power went out while I was at work---and it wasn't repaired fully for 2 days because of the massive amount of storms we got within a couple of days. It got repaired, but then it went off again because a tree fell onto power lines and actually took out the main pole with the transformer on it. That took another day to repair.
More storms started to hit, and then bad luck struck again. You know the saying "It comes in 3's"? Well, this was the third---and this one was a doozy. Our basement got flooded with an inch of water. We couldn't figure where the flooding started until my Dad went up the street. Here, because we live in a plan and on the bottom of a hill we would get the run off from the hill. Naturally, all the heavy downpours cause flash flooding and started to overflow the drainage pipe. It was too much for it, and it started to run into the grass and down the basement access door. Only thing I can see good out of this is that it was only an inch of water. It could've been worse. For the past few days, I have been working---dealing with the insurance company with my mom---and cleaning out the basement. So much dirt and mud was left over from the flood that it took 3 days to actually clean everything up. Because of the flood, we did lose some things. My VHSes surprisingly made it through, but I did lose three things. Three boxed, never opened, Space Jam figures from the 90's. When I first found the figures, I took them to an appraiser and the appraiser valued all of my Space Jam figures. I have all of the figures, mind you so I have a nice chunk of money from those. When they were appraised, the specific ones that I lost was valued at a combined total of $408. So that is why I was able to talk to the insurance company about it. They are still awaiting for other paperwork.
So today happens, and things finally start to calm down. I thank everyone for being so patient with my artwork/stories that have to be uploaded. It has been a crazy week, but I am starting to be back to normal again.
And to everyone----your/the artwork I have been working on will certainly be uploaded tomorrow afternoon when I am off work!
