Still its good morning. The electric cooperative announced yesterday there will be no electricity today. They never lied about it. So my station who main depending on huge loads of electricity shutted down. It will be from 5am to 5pm. Oh my they love 5's. Thanks my town was spared so I can do mylotting with fair spped. Its not fast but I can deal with this. But still I will be at the station later.

At least they let you know there would be an outage. It is very annoying when it happens unexpectedly.

Its hard because you cannot prepare especially charging the mobile phones. It's good they are making an announcement here.

@ilocosboy the unannounced power interruptions may be due to short circuit, or overloading due to many gadgets. sometimes power can be restored after several minutes to a few hours.
