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%!Posted to Apropos of nothing by Simon Brunning at September 06, 2002 09:39 AM
