We just phoned Scottish Power and they said it's every 3rd house. Just as I was putting the chicken in the oven. Bloody freezing

We've no power in our house in Darrell Road - although nearly every other neighbour seemed to be unaffected - which was more than galling! Was told it was a problem at the local substation and one of the major fuses had blown twice, which could indicate a problem with underground cabling. The lady I spoke to thought this might mean road excavation, etc.. I am on a mailing list to receive a text with news of progress. No texts received yet sad smiley

I have therefore decamped with kids to my girlfriend's house in Upper Norwood, where I'm currently luxuriating in electricity.
Hope it's sorted soon for folks who don't have this option - our gas heating doesn't work without electricity. Madness!

Yeah we are on that text-mailing list too FB and havent had a peep yet but we've been back on for a bit now. I didnt think the rain was that heavy though. We had the same thing a year ago when we were living in Barry Rd and the guys digging a hole near Barry's Stores cut through a cable.

Maybe its an annual event, something to set your clock by......as long as it isnt digital

I just got the text saying engineers are on the way, even though we have had our power back for over 24 hours. Nice to be kept in the loop though.....bless!

So Is the Power Back? Or is the Title Misleading?
