After days of severe thunderstorms rolling through every few hours, on the afternoon of Monday 13 June 2022 at around 3.30 there was a huge lightning flash, an enormous roll of thunder right overhead and the power went off.
There were a couple of momentary flickers of the lights but power was eventually restored at around 1015 am on Tuesday 14 June. That’s a total outage of almost 19 hours.
Note: with any power outage visit Electra Outages for information and to report a problem.
For me, one problem was I kept expecting the power to come back on at any moment. I could have lit the fire and made a cup of tea or cooked some dinner. Maybe next time? With global climate change giving us more frequent and longer lasting storms perhaps we should expect more power outages…
