I have Solar Powered Internet. It goes down in the afternoon and stays down until the next morning.
Also, I went down into the cellar again last night, even though I said I wouldn't do it again this week.. It was a lot less scary after I turned the light on. The Cave Spider infestation doesn't seem that bad - most of the cocoons look empty, and I only saw about seven or ten spiders, and only three of them were larger than the ones I first captured.
The sound of trickling water you hear as soon as the hatch is opened is from a leaky water hose. Didn't check if it was cold water or hot water. Didn't do anything with the water heater as I couldn't find any temperature controls, but I didn't go around the back because of scary spiders.
Removed one spider and one cocoon. Maybe more later.
Oh, and Odessa seemed to really enjoy exploring the cellar. It took a lot of coaxing to get her to come back up.
