First we had rain starting light but getting heavier as the evening progressed. Then when we were going to bed the electricity went off; it came back on; then it went off; then it came back on. We quickly got ready to go to bed because without electricity the place is in total darkness - no lights in the street to shine through the windows etc. The electricity went off again and I fumbled round to find a torch only to discover that the batteries had gone. I found a second torch which thankfully worked and made sure it was by the bed.
The electricity came back on and then must have gone off again sometime in the night because when Pamela got up to have a drink the place was in total darkness. This morning it had come back on but went off again briefly and then returned. It has been on now for about 40 minutes. Who knows how long it will stay on though?
It is going to be one of those days.
