    Steve Pierce Without Internet

    Hi All,
    After several technical questions posted and no response along with a few side questions I posed to him I finally called Steve yesterday to ensure he and his family were OK. It seems Graham got hit with a major lightning storm on Saturday night and has fried the incoming Internet connection so he is waiting for the company to deal with it. For now he is off line.

    Noted Graham Citizen Escapes Wrath of Nature (May 27, Associated Press)

    After Saturday Graham's very own Steve Pierce promises that he will never, ever make a disparging remark about a Super Cub ever again following a lightning strike that left the town without power and his internet fried beyond recognition.

    "It was just a slip of the tongue", said Pierce, "I was working on a Super Cub and dropped the battery box bolts right behind the baggage compartment....well, I then said a naughty word about the Cub's lineage and there was a huge zapping noise and crash!" The lightning strike just missed Pierce's cluttered hangar and blew out the local power plant transformer, cutting power to the small Texas town and Pierce's shop.

    Pierce, a noted blog author on all things Super Cub, has been unable to preach to his disciples since Saturday. The inability to communicate has caused significant problems for those in the middle of complicated mechanical endeavors. Pierce observed "There's this one guy in New Hampshire who was in the middle of a difficult mechanical update on his aircraft who installed his onboard emergency urinal device improperly because we couldn't post the final chapter of our popular article "Pissing While Flying--You Can Do It" on the internet. We've really left our readers dangling."

    According to local officials at the local internet service provider, the outage has affected nearly everyone. "Most people just spend all of their time looking at porn so frustration levels are running high. This guy Pierce, however, is different. We had no idea there were so many frustrated mechanics nationwide who depend on this guy for his sage advice and wry observations. He's apparently an institution."

    As for Pierce, he's taking the downtime in stride. He and his wife Cathy are taking a second honeymoon at Graham Lake for a couple of days. They were last seen loading a game of Scrabble in the car to keep Steve entertained during the mini-vacation. Their son, Lee, however, has different plans. He's decided to take up golf and is looking forward to lessons from his beloved "Uncle Joe" who is recovering from recent surgery to have his knees replaced after flying too much.

    Jeff is good. Last year during our little flyin i was lucky to have jeff standing right next to me. The local reporter showed up and started asking me questions. After a second of not knowing what to say, i sicked him on jeff. When the paper came out the follwoing week i had several selectman begging for us to have another and wondering how they could help. They really beleive that flyin restored the maine economy. He has really missed his calling, a presidential speech writer would be up his alley.

    By the Way it sounded like Steve would not be able to get back online quickly. I told him to take the Laptop over to Mac Donalds or park in the Best Western for Wireless.
    So all of you that need to vent about Steve....particularly all you TCOW owners who think they should not be disparaged you have a few days.

    Jeff,

    It concerns me that you have mentioned Steve Pierce, honeymoon and Scrabble all in the same paragraph.


    Good post.

    You guys and gals are too much. Jeff, I think you have been around your kids way too long. I might forward a link to this post to my Internet provider. Still no Internet at the hanger.

    I have heard the Graham Police are looking for some type of peeping Steve down to the Executive Motel. Seems he hangs out for hours behind the Mexican place in his pick up truck just looking around.......Oh wait he is on the wireless. Who Knew
