It’s moving time, and do you know what that means? OrksandCats.com is going offline tomorrow evening! After a long winter of preparation, we’re packing everything today, and loading into the moving truck tomorrow. The actual server and our network equipment will be the last thing I tear down tomorrow evening, since we’re taking it ourselves.
Tomorrow we’ll head west to our new home in the Golden State. We should get there in a few days, weather permitting. Of course, we had to pick the coldest day in a couple of decades to begin a cross-country adventure, so it may take longer. Just going to the grocery store for trip supplies took an hour and a half since we could only drive 5-10 mph on the iced roads.
We’ll be driving with our menagerie singing in the back seat of the truck and our trusty camper behind us, so it should be a fun trip, if a bit loud.
We won’t be able to bring the web server back online until we have internet service at the new house. That could be a couple of days, or it could be a couple of weeks. The pandemic has a lot of routine services taking longer than they otherwise would, and we have a lot to do when we arrive. Rest assured, getting our critter pics and the story of our move posted are a pretty high priority.
Wish us luck! We love you all, and we’ll see you on the far side.
