Boy did it… we were out of service from 11am – 5:30am, which was actually longer than we were out of service with the HUGE blackout.
"The rolling blackouts were Toronto Hydro’s efforts to give a little power to customers while Hydro One works on repairing the problem," Toronto Hydro spokeswoman Tanya Bruckmueller said.
Hunh… "a little power" and what good is that? We got 2 small blips of service.
The first was just enough time for me to get the computer turned on and the network up and running… then down she went again.
The second was perfectly timed for us to wait nervously… then blow out the candles, and set up for the much anticipated next episode of Rock Star:INXS… only to have the power shut off approximately 1.5 minutes before the show started.
It has however reminded us to have candle holders preloaded and matches placed strategically about the house.
