Today we were scheduled to have a power cut in Metung for some work replacing power poles.
The cut to the power started at 8.30 am and was meant to conclude at 2.30 pm. I received a text message at about 12.00 telling me that the power would not be restored until 5.00 pm as there was a delay.
We live on a dirt road that is accessed by four households so it doesn’t see much traffic. Today it was like Pitt Street. At one stage there was a group of nine trucks of various types. We haven’t seen this amount of traffic at any stage in the time we have been living here.
This is the old pole being taken away.
You really don’t appreciate your electricity until you find you don’t have any! Most things these days require power to operate. We are lucky in that we have a gas cooktop but an electric oven. We were at least able to cook on the stove during the day.
