During Monday's power cut I noticed two cases of failed resilience.
The first was that the burner of my camping gas stove had become clogged with dust having sat undisturbed on the bottom shelf since the last all-day, all-night power cut several years ago. Keep your burners dust-free!
The second I only noticed when I got in my car to go somewhere with power, turned on the radio and heard that the Prime Minister had advised "checking online" before venturing out. This made me realise that we need a local online resource in such times, not something I'd previously considered. So bookmark this blog because during future power cuts I intend to keep the blog updated with details of the local situation. Before venturing out during a power cut please check the blog for details of road closures, flooding and traffic problems.
