A call to our provider, AT&T, revealed that this is a glitch they were trying to overcome. I got instructions on resetting my network settings, which should clear it up.

Oddly, and somewhat pleasantly, we’ve alternated rainy days and sunny days over last weekend. Michelle’s and Aly’s end-of-season staff party for Rainbow Glacier Adventures fell on a sunny day; since it included a chartered boat to Skagway, that turned out quite nice!
