The entire town of Montgomery Center lacks efficient cell phone service and so this is not specific to our apartment. Usually the internet is functioning just fine and cell phones can work on the wifi access, but I think that the extreme cold with minus 20F temps adversely affected internet operations of Comcast during the holiday week. I know of two other properties on 2 sides of the mountain that also experienced slow operations. One was serviced by Comcast and another by Fairpoint yet both had issues.
In terms of the shower curtain, this will immediately be taken care of and I thank you for drawing my attention to this.
