Last night, I told my son that once he brings out the dogs at 5AM, he should pass by the room where I sleep to get the phone charger so he can charge his phone—we thought the power interruption will take effect at 8AM today. He did that and I put off my one phone to conserve the battery. I stood up of bed at 7AM thinking I should boil water before the electricity goes off. My sister though went out of her room and said, “There is an update this early morning about the scheduled brown out. We are excluded”. I immediately checked on Facebook and it is true. (Prior to that, I responded to some who commented on my Nutella discussion, on my phone.) Then I waited until 8AM. It is true. Our feeder 53 is excluded from the areas that will experience the brownout. So now, we have power interruption. I mean, we do NOT have power interruption.

Good to hear that your area is excluded. Is it always happen? I mean, the power interruption?

we have scheduled brownouts, so if we are excluded, we all smile here at home and give out sighs of relief

@JustBhem sadly, it is. there are other feeders that have their own schedule of power interruption.

yes, i am so happy, but several hours ago, i read on Facebook that the brownout for today is actually rescheduled on Monday, so we will still have the power interruption from 8am to 5pm.

It's such a hassle when they have to do that. Specially scheduled ones since it lasts the entire day.

i agree. but it is better if it is announced. unexpected and unannounced brownouts are worse especially if our mobile phones are not fully charged and about to get drained.
