Yesterday afternoon the power blipped out in the suburbs of Farrer and Mawson (any where else, I wonder ?). When I rang ACTEW-AGL, a recording told me that there had been a power failure in these suburbs and power would be restored at 5 p.m. (it actually came on about 14 minutes past.)
Not bad, she grudgingly conceded, but why did it go out in the first place, and is this
a taste of things to come this long hot summer ?
