FWIW, I live a few miles East of Springfield and have WDSL through 
Springnet. During very heavy rain/snow like we've had recently and 
over the past few years we've never had a weather related outage here 
with the Breezecom equipment they use. In REALLY heavy rain I've 
noticed slightly slower downloads but can't say for sure it wasn't 
some other system factor. We have a 384KB connection.
