Happy New Year



Some would say Good Riddance to the year 2016, but in all fairness I didnt find it that bad.  Everyone near to me is still near and we even have a new addition on the way to increase the Blades Power fold; so in all 2016 for me was so much better than some previous years.  Im glad to say that we didnt have a Powercut over Christmas, some families however were not so lucky. 

It was thought that around 1300 Homes were thought to be affected on the Christmas Morning in Horsford.

369 Homes were hit in the Catterick Garrison and Residents from Baden Powell, leadmill, Allenby Est and Scotton reported losing their supply just before 1pm.  New Years Day didnt excape the Odd Powercut here and there.  We even had some local Powercuts in Stroud and Tewkesbury over the festive Holiday.

Powercuts at the start of 2017 have been steady, with a few Blast from underground cables..... Cable Fires Ive noted are on the rise...maybe its due to surges along them; reports on how they started unless it was due to an animal chewing etc dont become public knowledge.  

Mind you I found a New one for me on the Net

"Shock as UFO Suddenly Shot over Peoples Houses and caused a Powercut" 

No one seems to notice the powercut unless it happens to them.  Some areas are experiencing more outages than others and a few reports surface based on peoples fierce reaction to being left in the cold and Dark.

The Weather plays a massive contributing fact to Powercuts.  The UK seems to have endured quite a few of late and by looking at the MET Office and the amount of warnings going out we may be getting hit by some of those arctic blasts that have hit parts of Europe and snow that is 6ft deep and more.

My advice - Get yourself prepared!  Stock up on candles, stock up on food and essentials and get ready to hunker in for a few days.  Invest in Generators, Torches and some BBQs in Boxes.

You dont have to believe anything I say, thats freedom of choice; However whilst you still have power check the internet, check out the Electric suppliers who are all promoting new adverts on what to do in a Powercut, or how vulnerable people can get aid quickly during a powercut.

Check out the reports...many of which state there is NO Power issues and then the massive amount that say we are heading for another Blackout Britain.

Check out the amount of Emergency Preparedness sites that are popping up - The New 105 Number to call if you have a Powercut.  This isnt a conspiracy its facts and worryingly not that many people are awake enough to see the signs or read the information being put out there.  They are gearing themselves up building an infrastructure so its in place before something big happens.
