I dont understand your Problem. When you have a bad Internet on this Place, dont play. Simply.
When you only have a DC, you can reconnect, nothing happen. Talking about "not under my Control" is absolutly stupid.
So, you can tell - Oh, I made an accident, but it wasn't my fault, it was the weather that caused it. If there is 20cm of snow you don't drive.
If you were punished, it was because you had been away long enough and the other players can't help that you don't care that you want to play with a bad connection anyway.
I have no pity, sorry.
