Eskom (South Africa's monopoly electricity provider) has just blamed a massive 12 hour blackout across the Western Cape on the recent fires and the mist which covered Cape Town this morning! Incredible!
We always thought that British Rail was pushing it when they blamed delays on 'leaves' or the 'wrong kind of snow' but Eskom really has BR licked when it comes to pathetic excuses!
Yes we're cross that we couldn't have a cup of tea when we got up this morning! At least church was interesting and our guest preacher (adrian Holloway) coped admirably and lead 6 people Christ. Praise God!!!!!!
