Maybe lightening can strike the same place twice?

The high winds of the last couple of days probably explain the loss of electricity that most residents experienced during Saturday and Sunday evening. But it was strange that on both nights the lights went out around 8.15 p.m.

Scottish and Southern Electric (the electricity supplier to the Chadlington) said that there were 484 homes without power last night and the power cut lasted about an hour. They said that it was due to a fault with their high voltage outage due to a damaged disk (?) – whether this was weather related is unclear so, as ever, it is difficult for the layperson to anticipate any further disruption.

If you are concerned that we may have further problems, it would be wise to make sure you have a working torch and charged up mobile phone close to hand during the continuing dark evenings, just in case.
