Hello Everyone

Yesterday was a terrific day (I am being sarcastic) We had electrical maintanance through most of the town I live in as they were upgrading or doing something to the electrical wires Most little shops were closed as they had no back up generator and the power was supposed to be down till about 6 pm, they said 10 pm at the latest. SO even thelittle coffe shop we have here was closed due to no power. Thank goodness the power returned just after 3 pm and I was able to get online and the geyser warmed up nicely for bath time.

We do not really realize the extent that electricity plays in our lives, But I found out yesterday when everything I almost do during the day, from washing, to ironing and working online, to when my cell phone went flat, how much we depend on electricity.

I am just glad everything has been sorted out now.

Nothing will make you appreciate anything like the lack of something.

Glad for you that it was sorted and earlier than expected, too. It does make you appreciate when you don't have it, even for a short time. Hope for you a GRAND day, today :)

Its a mess when the power goes out. I have been working at having backup resources, because we just never know.

Oh we are about to go through the same electrical downtime you had. The entire neighborhood is supposed to power down tomorrow Sunday, 29June @ 8am until 5pm, that really sucks. That's why I'm trying to make the most of what's left for the day here in PH emoticon :smile:
