The power's out across most of the Shire, I've got the fire going and the generator running and I think to myself... if I see any robot ants with tiny mufflers poking out their bums, I'm going to have to put more coffee in the whiskey next time.

The ants went marching one by one,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The ants went marching one by one,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The ants went marching one by one,
With mufflers poking out their bums,
And they all went marching...

Hope you get power back soon.

We had a blackout here yesterday morning (some bright spark drove into a power pole and it took a couple of hours for power to be restored). At least you have the fire and the genny. We have nothing at our place without power - no lights, no heat, no way of coooking, no hot water . . . and my laptop would only last about an hour on battery power.

Yeah, what she said! If not, I hope you've got something to occupy your time... Drunk

The power ended up being off for just under 23 hours, so while those of us with generators were able to keep fridges and lights running, the local telephone exchange fell over after 6 hours and we don't have a mobile (cell) tower, so we were completely without communications (including access to 000/911) for quite some time.

People assure me I'm living in the 21st century.

I could believe that.

We're supposed to be getting a cell tower some time before the end of 2018, but given that the information was provided by a politician, it's one of those, "I'll believe it when I see it," things.

Of course, the other side of the coin is that people out here don't spend all their time staring into the screens of their smartphones - we actually engage in human interaction, instead.
