Thanks to our revolutionary power-outage-combating combination of battery-charger, deep-cycle battery, inverter and extension leads, I am still able to blog.
And to locate Eskom’s latest load-shedding schedules.
Eskom’s own website, where you can type in your suburb and search for the times when you are likely to be shut down
an independent website, where you can also search for the times when your area will be in the dark.

Two travelling friends from Germany (who will no doubt be ravenous after a day of tourist activities) are supposed to arrive for supper. The tricky part now will be to figure out how to heat up the pre-prepared supper dishes my hubby is (as we speak) thoughtfully buying at the Woolworths food store so that I won’t have to slave away in the kitchen over a hot stove, stirring long strings of pasta in a pot.
Perhaps it is time to connect the little two-plate gas-cooker that has been languishing in our garage cupboard since 2006?
