Powercut

Post by GordonCopestake »

Just had a nice 1 hour powercut. Rang up to see what was going on and apparently 3rd party workmen had cut through a power cable killing 3000 houses in my postcode. How irritating!!! Not because i've had no power for an hour but because they didnt wait for it to go dark!

So if later on, on a nice clear night, a figure holding shears is seen advancing on the position of the powerline's last decline, we'll know where to look?
