No I mean I'm in a funny area that seems to not have them. I'm told it's an area very close to the hospital. I've got a friend on Lant St and he has them, and a friend on Camberwell Green that has more than her fair share. I've lived in many parts of London and this is the only place I've never had one.
When I was a kid they were really exciting. Playing cards by candlelight. Not sure I'd feel the same now though.
I live in the Shadwick Sq development (between Falmouth Rd and Spurgeon St) and we lost power then too... happens semi-regularly! The really annoying thing is that it resets eveyrone's alarms, which take ages to go off afterwards...
We've been around TBR/Bricklayers in various places for nearly 5 years and had probably 5 or 6 power cuts - although several of those were grouped closely together so may have been related.
They'll become a much bigger problem if the green element of government keep on going with increasing the percentage of renewable energy generation over fossil fueled/nuclear power without changing the network structure.
