So... my office computer got a virus. Within seconds everything went crazy. Work IT guru retrieved my files, the hard drive was wiped, and reformated. The day after it crashed, my yahoo email account was compromised. Resolved everything with yahoo on the phone, then my Blackberry froze - the IT guru had transferred ~5,000 emails into my INBOX (the ones he had successfully retrieved) at once, and my Blackberry went into shock. Off to the Verizon store, and after an hour of waiting and an hour of fiddling with my phone, it worked again. The next morning my home computer - within a period of about two minutes - crashed. The blue screen of death appeared. Had it diagnosed - bad mother board, not worth replacing. Thankfully, all files were again retrieved.
Computer crashes are life-altering events.
The daylilies are still blooming.
The garden is parched and unhappy - about a half inch of rain last night at least moved the dust around. Less than one inch of recorded precipitation since 22 April - we are in a drought.
Off to Virginia tomorrow to visit my Dad for Father's Day.
