Suddenly, it all went black...

There I was, typing away, when suddenly, the power went out.

This was at 4 p.m. BST yesterday.

Apparently, someone cut through a power line with a digger down by Tower Hill. I hope no one was hurt. A big chunk of the city lost power, and they estimated that it wouldn't come back until between seven and eight.

So I went down the pub. ;-)

Update: I gather that the power wasn't back until after ten. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one whose estimates are out by 50%!
