Now it is our turn

12. May 2013 by Ludger

… to report a power outage.

Not that it would be uncommon to us, we encountered a couple of over that last few weeks, but this one seems to last long.

So it is at least a good reason to spent a Sunday morning in bed. And since we are well equipped with bushveld gear, we still had a scrumptious brunch.
But we realize once more how dependent we are on electricity, and how a lack of it limits your activities.

So far we don’t know yet about the cause nor when electricity will come back. Let’s keep fingers crossed it will be rather soon – the laptop battery doesn’t last forever. But actually I am more concerned for how long the water lasts in the tank without the borehole pump refilling, and how long both the geyser and the freezer keep temperatures.

      alles im gruenen Bereich. Strom kam am spaeten Nachmittag wieder- fuer 60 Minuten, und als wir uns spaeter bei Kerzenlicht schon auf einen kurzen Abend eingestellt hatten, gingen die Lichter wieder an 😉
