Sigh dude I've lived in areas since the early 1990s that had constant power failures, hasn't gotten any better or any worse though they keep building townhouse complexes.Power just went off (7.45pm) in Kenilworth, CT. Can't possibly be load shedding, so must be local transformer. Doesn't happen often, but a reminder of what is likely to come...
Get a power bank for charging laptops and phones when there's an outage.Power just came back on in our area after 3 hours.
Message on group: Sub-station in Wynberg caught fire so we might be off for a while.
P.S. Surprised by unplanned outage, so my cellphone battery was down to 4% by the time power came back on.
