The Lounge

Re: The Lounge

I don't dispute the need to shed load but there are a certain amount of politics and playing games involved here as well.

Apart from the other two times we were off we were scheduled for 22:00 to 00:30 last night which never happened.

 I knew that they downgraded to stage 2 at 23:00 and kept at stage 2 throughout the night 

They switched to stage 4 again at 09:00 

At stage 2 we were scheduled for 06:00 to 08:30 this morning which also never happened. 

If the grid is so tight and load shedding necessary why were we skipped for 5 hours. not that we are not thankful but both times would not have mattered that much in any case

That was an Eskom thing.  We were on Stage 2 all through the night, and back to Stage 4 this morning.


I considered that possibility (would explain the confused webpage as well), and for either stage we did have the post-midnight listing, which we've always had "included", but as stage 2 is low priority compared it then surely wouldn't have qualified taking such a mad late action.

Unless our municipality were confused by mixed info as well... :-/

 

Either way, all I can say is BAH! for the usual wide lack of basic effort in some organisations these days!

Re: The Lounge

Chaos continues to reign in Jo'burg with our LS - now duration ranges from 2.5 to over 4 hours, start and end times fluctuate and don't always stick properly to the time slot, and last night they started shedding after midnight!! Are they mad?! Who knows how many alarms went off and alarm clocks didn't!!

 

And today, we've got conflicting info on the same municipal page...

Fortunately in Cape Town we only go off for two hours at a time.  Four hours without electricity is ridiculous!


Ja, that's a JHB thing... not sure the reasoning (if any) behind it. Pta is 2.5 , with 30min overlap between the zones

Re: The Lounge

Thankfully, we are unaffected ( or supposed to not be affected) today by LS.

Yes, the political parties are really active. I responded to their call to say, I will vote for them IF the DA will see to it that I get a job by the end of the month.
