It’s bee a long time since the inner north saw a power outage that saw us breaking out the candles.
Around 6.30 everything went out, including the MacArthur-Northbourne traffic lights.
A call to the ACTEWAGL line listed in the phonebook told me they expected the power back on by 8. There was a traffic cop in place of the abovementioned lights within minutes and by 7:40 a truck had pulled up in front of the junction box and ten minutes later power was restored.
Nice to see things function so smoothly. I’ve decided to stay under candlelight for the night however.
