I am logging to HTTP:

logger.addHandler(logging.handlers.HTTPHandler(host, url))

Works great, except if my HTTP server happens to be unavailable:

socket.error: [Errno 111] Connection refused

Other than wrapping all my logger.log() calls in try/except blocks, is
there a way to skip logging to the HTTPhandler if the HTTP server is
