well update peeps im now back on - i hope. had 3 hrs on 6 hrs off then 6 on and 3 off and so on but lat nite we went off at midnite and came back on 45 mins later, and still on. So hopefully either they have fixed my area or we are on a generator until sunday and may go off for 30-60 mins to put us back on to the normal. But not sure. Updates seem to be conflicting.
Good thing is animals are all ok - which was our main worry. But at home we had different slots to the shop. Lizards are a bit bewlidered, but nothing lost. Frozen stock also seems to be ok as at the shop we would not open freezer to sell stuff whilst power was off. But hey it was fun working in the dark - well as fun as we could make it.
But the nasties were about and houses and shops were broken into as alarms went wild but thankfully police managed to arrest some looters.
IVe heard so many different stories as to what happened etc. Did managed to catch some news last night to show the fire, some say it was kids others say it was totters trying to steel cable to sell, some say they got caught by police and arrested some say they got fried!
Hopefully in next weeks local rag it will give us more info.
IVe still got no telephone at home as line is still dead and mobiles are back to normal. People dont realise without electricity mobile phone masts cannot work to 100% so lots of mobiles down in areas with no power.
