We had a power cut earlier this afternoon, they said we wouldn't be back on until 10 p.m. but we got power back at 5 p.m. Made us realise how much we rely on tv/internet etc inour daily lives as both Os and I work on computers in our home. The wind is high just now and the lights flicker frequently - candles are handy just in case.
We had one yesterday for half an hour. No heating, no hot water, no internet. Life grinds to a halt. Yet in Uganda it used to be off for days and nobody thought anything of it.
