Power cuts


Recommended Posts

Just heard about the (unlikely) possibility of 3 hour power cuts and was initially annoyed till I realised that it would also mean no light pollution, wouldn't that be amazing to see the milky way when it normally would be completely obliterated.


Still, what are the chances of said power cuts happening on a clear moonless night?🤔

Gosh l remember that.  Miners strikes caused it and brought the government down. 

Three day working week so companies only had power for 3 days a week.  So everything non electric was done by everyone on the non electric days and on the electric days it was all hands on deck to try to keep everything ticking over. 

We had a gas oven so invited our neighbours round (who had an electric oven) for candle lit dinner.
