My Cox went down

Cox cable service (and internet) had an outage tonight from about 8 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Ridgepointe, the apartment complex I live in, includes cable in the rent so I knew it wasn't due to an unpaid bill.

Anthony had a rather amusing response:  "What do we do?"  There's nothing to do but wait til they fix it.  I spoke to a neighbor walking her dog outside and she said she had called the Cox office and there were about 1,000 customers involved in the outage on Tucson's east side.  Its nice to know you're not alone when things like this happen.  I told her I was staring at my dog Lucky for entertainment and she laughed.  One of those creepy polite laughs.

At our apartment, we rely a lot on internet and cable for entertainment.  Thanks to my Blackberry, I was able to Tweet and Facebook about the temporary crisis.

After service was restored I realized one thing is certain:  I prefer having my Cox up.
