Storms and Internet

There have been some pretty crazy storms recently. Last night when they began I was initially asleep but the wind was so loud that it woke me up. It sounded like a genuine tsunami outside – the windows were all shaky, the bricks seemed to rattle, and bits of leaves and smaller branches were falling from the trees and scattering themselves all over my roof. It was actually a little bit scary. Although, the scariest part would have to have been when there was a large gust of wind that completely shook my house and caused my television to fall off the wall and break on the ground.

Earlier today I had to go through the whole long and complicated process of finding one of the best TV wall mounting services Melbourne has to offer, so they can install a new television for me. After talking to one of the representatives over the phone, I learned that the previous installers must have done a pretty shoddy job. This is such a rare occurrence that can only be caused by poor installation practices. I’m definitely going to ring up my previous installers and give them a piece of my mind.

Something else I have to start thinking about is contacting a commercial phone line and broadband expert. My internet has been crazy slow since the storms last night, and I don’t even have any reception on my phone at all. I had to go to my friend’s house several streets away from me to borrow her phone to contact all the installation services. It’s so unfair that my house has no power but she barely noticed the storm at all. I’m not sure how I’m going to afford all of this. Hopefully, insurance covers most of the costs of the storm’s damage, but I do have a pretty low level of insurance so I might have to pay out-of-pocket.
