(in car) no cell service means no texting and driving, and also no reason to check your phone at all. so you can concentrate on the road. the trade off? you can't g-p-s while you're on the road, but...you can get your directions before you leave wi-fi, and screen shot them to yourself...and cross your fingers that the directions are right. but, if they're not? (in car) pull over to a place that you know has free internet, and get new directions. or, most gas stations still have a land line and maps, so you can figure it out and get back on your way. another con... imagine you get stuck on the side of the road? if it's an emergency, you still have 9-1-1, but other than that, you'll be walking, or flagging down a stranger...which is a little scary kevin: gretchin: con: no one can get in contact with you... which can be frustrating for them, but eventually liberating for you. pro: and also means, your boss can't call you after office hours. which can be frustrating for them, but eventually liberating for you. (in restaurant) and think of this, when you go to dinner or are on a date, you won't be tempted to take your focus away from what's happening, and check your social media. that makes you more polite, and once you get used to it, you'll find that your fear of missing out starts to fade, and you can enjoy what's in front of your face and live in the moment. one annoying thing? when you first ditch the phone service, you'll find that this happens...a lot. (are you mad at me? i texted and you never answered.) you'll be doing a ton of explaining the first few months. but people will finally start spreading the word. and with apps like snapchat, twitter, facebook, instagram, and what's app, you can still connect to everyone... when you have wi-fi. and there's always email! either way, it's an expensive bill that has made its way from convenience to necessity somehow...and maybe it's time that costly cell service needs to be put back in its place. i want to mention that my oldest daughter has also gone wi-fi only, and she says, my home has wi-fi, my work has wi-fi, my favorite places to go have wi-fi. being at the mercy of responding can be a hindrance to your emotional and mental health. it's nice to have that excuse, because generally people understand, "i can't afford it", as opposed to, "i just don't want you to be able to contact me, i want to be able to respond on my own time". now, do any of you think you could go cell service free? temps in the 60s and 70s around the tri-state area this morning... we see highs today well below average 70s and 80s for highs today...mostly cloudy skies with showers on and off for today.. have your umbrella today... we have a marginal risk for the southeast portion of the tri-state with damaging winds and hail the primary concern.....some areas of heavy rain possible today as well. below average temps continue through the next few days and by the end of the week, more near what temps should be for this
