Woke up this morning much earlier than planned - feeling cold, ****** power is off - not just me whole street, apparently for 3 hours - some ****** doing some ****** work and either ****** up big time or it was always part of the plan to turn off power for whole street in early hours of Sunday.

Inconsistencies in the electrical supply grid are the hallmarks of a third world country

We'd better get used to it...

What - you went back to sleep?

Went to the office, I planned to do it later anyway - now I won't get my usual Sunday Roast Beef from good local pub and will have to use tulipy half price one next to our office. :ohwell

One New Year’s morn, before I got hitched up with ex-mrs HAB, I awoke to find no power in the condo. The first think I thought was, ‘What on earth did I do last night to cause this?’ I was completely blotto the night before down the Sea View bar so I had this terrible feeling of guilt that I had done something silly. When I got up I immediately discovered that I could not wash, or have a cup of coffee. Also no computer, phone, radio, television, or air conditioning. It makes one realise just how dependant we are on that utility.

I walked around the complex to discover nobody had any power. I still had this guilty feeling that it was all my fault though. So I went for a walk and found that most of our end of the island was without power. I went back home and went for a dip in the pool for a bit.

By noon I was getting a bit fed up with it all, so I went down the bar again. As people turned up most had the same story, ‘I woke up this morning to find no power and wondered what I had done the night before to cause this’.
