View Full Version : We had a blackout

Last night, I was watching the amazing race and poof! All the electricity switched off. At first I thought it was because I havent paid the electricity bill.... even though it was pitch black I could feel the glares of my housemates on me... but it turns out the whole suburb had a blackout. Phew. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

I don't think I've experienced a blackout since the 1970's powercuts, and the three day week! But I was a kid then, so it was exciting having our tea by candle light.

Blackouts, we get them at least once every winter!! Usually because a tree blows down over some cable or something like that.
When that occurs I tend to realize how extremely much I actually rely on electric power!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif
