With in the last hour we have had Four electricity shortages. The whole street has lost power for about 20 seconds at a time! P*ssing me off big time now. Speaking to other people in the Southampton area and they report the same problems!
Glad I am not working on a late shift at my workplace! Ohh the fun they are having right now!
Just goes to show you that life with out electricity would completely suck.

I recently returned from India, where any decent home will have a big old inverter that will kick in whenever the power goes out, usually a couple of times a day for several hours. These inverters can be pretty big - the apartment we stayed in had one about 1 cubic meter, and it would keep everything going in the house for about 6 to 8 hours or so, except the air conditioning, which would suck it dry in about an hour at the most.
