Cloud wisps swirl in the sky like Snowball Garnets, Hummingbird hovers at my window...the blast worm attacks! After a series of mysterious shut-downs, I called my knight in shining armor, the South Dakota computer tech. Two hours later, the insidious worm was successfully deleted from my system. Guess I shouldn't have ignored those little 'security warning' pop-ups. Two more hours, all antivirus updates were successfully loaded onto crystalflier. Then the lights went out in NYC. My stomach knotted; I took a deep breath and held it until I heard the words spoken: Power outage is not due to terrorist attack.
