The Ministry of Civil Protection estimated that parts of the service could be restored in about seven or eight hours.

Edesur said that power had been restored to parts of Buenos Aires and local media reported that two airports were operating on generators in the capital.

Uruguay's energy company, UTE, said in a tweet that power had been restored to coastal areas.

The combined population of Argentina and Uruguay is about 48 million people.

Among the affected provinces in Argentina were Santa Fe, San Luis, Formosa, La Rioja, Chubut, Cordoba and Mendoza, reports said. Tierra del Fuego in the far south is the only area that remains unaffected because it is not connected to the power grid.
So it wasn't all of Argentina?

Tierra del Fuego is an island so yes, it is probably on a separate grid. Also, it has a very small populace, and the locals probably wouldn't worry about electricity outages because you don't need electricity to **** a sheep.

I think you confused Tierra del Fuego with New Zealand :D

The human yearning for sheep spans far further than New Zealand. Wales, Australia, Wyoming, Patagonia, the Karoo - look carefully and you'll realise they're just a bunch of sheep ****ers.

Weeks? You are lucky. Some of us had no power for years. I sometimes have to travel 9000 kilometers to post something on mybb.
