Just eight days after the last one, there was yet another power cut in the early hours of this morning. According to news reports the outage also affected Christchurch, Temple Bar and Wellington Quay.
I have no idea how long the power was off, but it was long enough to wipe the memory from my bedside clock. Luckily, however, I didn’t need my alarm this morning, as I was woken by traffic noise. But I could have just as easily slept in by mistake, and been late to work.
