This day is another irritating and disgusting day in our place, blackout too long.It starts at 6 in the morning and resumes 7 in the evening, so I brought my lap top to school. I supposed not to bring for it's heavy, but my class end at 2 , and I lost the appetite to go home right away, useless, it is too hot .What I do now is to do Mylotting hehehe. There is nothing to do at home ,but to feel the hot atmosphere, so better bring my lap top. I can do some interactions now.I do not know why our blackout is too long hours. I hope you are all doing fine. Thanks and take care my friends.

I hate blackouts. They are so annoying. I'm just glad that we've had few blackouts here. Since we've been at the place where we currently living (been here 3 years), we've had maybe a handful of blackouts and they haven't lasted more than 20-30 minutes. What does help is that we live next to the hospital and two senior housing. And there are quite a few seniors living in our complex.

@dodo19, The blackout problem here is worst and they told lies. It was announced current to come back at 7 pm , but current came back at 12 midnight. I go to school so sleepy and tired.

I am that way , when i know that it is blackout at home . I would stay behind at the office even if it is already dismissal . At least when i go home later at night , the electricity is back already . Strategy !

That's a long time shut down. I think definitely there is some maintenance work may cause the problem.

I hope that your power is restored soon. That is a long time to go without power. Good idea to bring the laptop to school. It at least helps pass the time until the power is restored in your area.

So what is their reason now for that very long blackout? Hope it won't happen again; maybe the new admin of the Department of Energy will find a lasting solution to it.
