    well after the high temps here in Victoria Australia

    500,000 Homes have no power due to the heat :(


    it has been well over 40C every day for the past 4 or 5 days.

    1000kw has been lost so thats huge !


    i got power :) Woohhoo :)

    Cheers

    Hi Tommo - WOW! That is a very bad situation. Just our of curiosity - if you don't mind me asking: do you have public supplied electricity? Or you do mean you have a generator running?

    wow tommo you gusy are worse than us:) at more than crieket....jokes aside thats hectic to loose that much power, is it just that there is undersupply or have powerstations shut down, not enough cooling....i would ahve though you guys would have learnt to deal with the heat by now...


    looking out my window in norway i see snow, ice and -12 degrees :) what a world apart!
