Is there only a tarpaulin covering my local substation? I’ve had about 15 power cuts in the last 2 hours.

Seriously, in a country like England, where we have about 100-150 days of rain a year, surely it’s beyond moronic for the local power circuits to short out every time there’s heavy rainfall? Maybe they ran out of pig fat to smear over the circuit breakers, what with it being a cold winter and all.

I hate to think what it’s done to the lifespan of some of the electronics in the house.

A proper update will have to wait until later, after I’ve played with some self portraits that I took during the dark grimness that ran amock during the power cuts.

Events occur in real time...
