Can You Live Without The Internet?

Steemians,

Today I had a bit of a reminder not to take things for granted. I lost connection to the Internet for the first half of the working day due to the bad weather.

The mobile data masts in my neighbourhood must have all crapped out since I wasn't the only one having issues. To add to the chaos, my laptop's wifi and bluetooth weren't working. They've been temperamental since updating the operation system on the mac.

I couldn't go home from the cafe because I didn't have an umbrella with me, and it was pouring down pretty heavily in addition to the winds. Since my computer bag isn't water proof, I just couldn't risk it.

The silver lining was that they have outstanding coffee at my cafe :)

Lessons learnt :)

How dependent are *you* on the Internet? Can you function normally if you were not to have access for an entire day? A week? Months?
