Hoping our iMac will get well soon

While  in the middle of writing something the computer screen suddenly become one big pixelated checker board. I turned it off and on.  Then it was a screen covered in stripes.  Kind of like those stripes on baby blankets everyone gets for their newborns.

Then the screen went completely white.  A sad lonely desolate white.

i hope the graphic card is all that needs to be replaced.  I hope our auto backup was working.

3-5 days at least until we find out.  Sigh.
