Does anyone else think like this?

I have a couple WordPress blogs.  Thirty or so minutes ago, I was making some updates to them.  I made the update for this one without any problem, but when I went to log into the next one, it came up that it couldn’t find the site.  That’s odd, I thought.  I was able to open this blog, so I figured it must just be a glitch and I would just have to wait to make the update.  So I went to check my email, but something happened when I tried to sign out, saying it couldn’t find the site.  Okay.  I check Google Reader without any problem, then tried to check Facebook.  Couldn’t find the site.  My internet connection is kinda crappy some days, so I usually just assume my connection has broken, but all the lights were on.  And then I couldn’t get any site – even the ones I was just on – to come up.

Now, my first thought was just that there was some issue with my internet connection.  I should just unplug it, wait a few seconds, and let it reset.  But my second though – neither close nor distant – was to wonder if this was an attack, either a massive cyber attack or a nuclear EMP blast crashing all the internet sites.  So while my connection reset, I turned my TV on and checked the news channels which just had their normal 2:30 AM crap.

Once my internet was back up, I was able to get back the sites without issue.  Problem solved.  But I wonder if anyone else has similar thoughts when their internet goes down.  For weeks after 9/11, the first thing I did when I woke up was to turn on the news to see if something else had happened.  There was an expectation that something else would happen.  I guess that hasn’t gone away.
