The newspapers may have reported only seven hours power cut, but that definitely wasn’t the case!
After about ten hours of no power, I wondered if we would get the electricity back anytime soon. Well, we did, a full twenty hours later.
Added to that we had a total blackout around 12.30am which lasted for another eight hours or so. Kept tossing and turning in my bed for a good portion of the night with huge mosquitoes hovering all around me.
When I finally did fall asleep, it was time to wake up 🙁
Have to hit the books now. There’s a lot that has happened in the past which I still need to find the time to blog about. However, for regular updates to my life you can signup to receive updates via Twitter or Jaiku.
Glad to know that I am not alone.
Wow, 20 hours of power cuts? We occasionally get short outages, but nothing like that. We have a bigger problem here with brownouts and spikes, sudden “off/on” cycles that can damage electronics. Almost all my stuff is on surge protectors because of that.
Hope your power is back to normal for a while.
It has been normal today. However, with load shedding being applied, most weekends are without power. We got gensets that run, however only a limited power points work 🙁
7 hours of powercut!!???? We in Kerala are cribbing about 30 minute power cuts 🙂
@Binny, somehow glad … I wish none of us had it!
@Jayson, In many places it is worse. I really wonder why the sad situation!
Man 20 hours !!! that’s too much. Used to have like 10 – 15 minutes power cut occasionally but not anymore.
Man i cant live without power for more than 3Hrs
and how anyone can live like this ?
Well, it’s worse on weekends. We don’t have power all through Saturday and Sunday!
It happened to Philippines before and its really dissapointing
20 hours! We could never deal such a long time. What about the refrigerator and all the food in it? I definitely would use a laptop with battery if power cuts every now and then. Then you would lose your text or whatever work you where doing with the laptop.
