phone outage

Investigation by the light of day seemed to point to our old answer-phone: once I disconnected it (which I couldn’t do before as it was in the room where Rosa was sleeping) the dial tone resumed. Just as well I figured this out before Telecom came around to test the line – they charge $81 for callouts where the fault was caused by the customer’s equipment.

Sometime in the middle of the night it stopped raining, so the bucket never overflowed either. Phewf.
