Well, miracle of miracles, it was actually announced that we should expect some electrical outages for a few weeks. Load shedding actually. We have been informed!
Apparently a loose latch led to some major electrical damage to one of the 2 generators. So while they fix it, they're going turn off power periodically. Our area gets to enjoy shutdowns on Monday afternoons and Friday mornings. How am I supposed to write my book under these conditions??!! My laptop battery stinks and we all know I'm not going to hand-write the darn thing. I wouldn't be able to read a word of it!
Nice to get a heads-up at least. Gonna miss the ceiling fans spinning - amazing how much cooler things are those things. Just might have to head to the pool. Horrors.
