Going to have to type quickly and save often for this entry. I don't know how much longer I'll have electricity for. Even before a thunderstorm came through, the power to our suburb has been up and down tonight, for up to an hour and a half at a time. I think my fish are all ok, which is a good thing. Had a few of the neighbours round to have a look at the fish after the power came back up the last time, they were suitably impressed :)

It's amazing how reliant I am on electricity, and how much I take it for granted. Without it tonight I seriously had *nothing* to do. Without my computer and at least a room light, I was just sitting here wondering what I could do. I ended up sorting out a bunch of rubbish that needed to be chucked, took it out to the bins, wandered around the block to see how far the outage was away, and came back to end up chatting with neighbours in the corridor. I didn't even have dinner tonight.. oops

Well I got into work early when it was still dark enough to need headlights, disconnected my landline, and ploughed through a huge pile of work. Today was an infinitely better day than yesterday. It's amazing how much work you can do when you're not interrupted every five minutes!

Anyways, posting this before we lose power again.

Did you lose the power again? Does that happen everytime you have a thunderstorm?
I don't think we have ever lost power due to a thunderstorm over here... but then I guess there are thunderstorms and THUNDERSTORMS, and as your garden spiders are the size of a dinnerplate or small and deadly... it's kind of a daft question!
