No Electricity Again & Again --

My posts will probably be few and far between for the next week to ten days.


Because BC Hydro (our electric company) will be working on the underwater cables that supply our small island with power. We live on a small island off the coast of Vancouver Island and they've discovered that one of the reasons that our power goes out so much is that there are problems with the underwater cables that supply us.

So they will be "pulling" these cables up and trying to find the problems and repair them. They've sent fliers around to let us know that we'll be without power during this proceedure. . . . and we don't have much daylight at this latitude this time of year.

Thus I might not have much (or any) time to post for a while.

Well, we are now living in Canada . . . and Canadian Thanksgiving was LAST MONTH.

Power was off today as planned. Came back on. Browned down. Then went bye-bye for a few more hours . . .

. . . (wait for it) . . .

. . . Again!

If you can muster enough light-it's a great time to work on those SYW rules that you have hinted at!

Stay warm.

We just now finally got power back after just under 36 hours of no electricity (again). The power company claims that the blizzard which hit BC is responsible for the power outage . . . but, of course, it went out well before the storm hit . . . *sigh*.

As for working on my rules . . . they are on the computer, of course, and since I don't have a printer here, I can't do anything on them when we are without power. Of course we don't know how soon it will go out again . . . and there's another "planned outage" tomorrow.
