Our electricity went off at 4am and just came back up (3.40pm) as well as serious forum withdrawl symptoms because the computer was down I also spent the morning boiling pans of water so that I could wash my hair!
Just wondered how widespread the problem was and if anyone knew why it had taken so long to fix it.
Power went off because of some failure of the cables in Leroy Street - it seemed to affect a strange selection of flats and houses though. Initially they couldn't find the source of the problem and thought they were going to have to dig up the whole street. Looks like they found the break though and, after nearly a week now, have just about filled in the hole they dug....
They left the hole open for two day's the barriers where in the hole and I had to help a poor old lady get her trolley out of the hole were she could not get out of the entrance to Guinness Square. We didn't seem to be affected by the power cut though.
