Power Crisis Driving You Insane Yet?


#1

Any one else experiencing this weird situation where as the clock approaches certain times in the day or when you have had power for a few hours that you constantly start wondering when exactly the power is going to out? And for how long?

It's driving me nuts; I am expecting the power to disappear any minute right now :P

Is there any thing more disheartening than coming home to only find that you can't relax because the power is out? Ugh...


#2

Not yet. It's all scheduled here, i.e. 4 times x 30 mins at same time each day. So, we're prepared beforehand. :lol:

Its scheduled too in my area 6-8 am. But the problem is that its 5 days a week. They dont cut power when they dont feel like it. Every day i am sitting here wondering "is today my lucky day?"

Same here, but somehow, it’s mostly pinned to Saturday and Sunday for some reason.

It's insane here. They have four 1 hour scheduled power cuts and one "Wildcard" 1 hour cut. The wildcard can be at the whim of the person at the grid. I shudder when I think of the coming summer months.

No scheduling in Karachi...at least in my area. Every time I sit down to get some work done on my PC...the lights go out. I am seriously considering investing in a notebook....alas the next bonus is 6 months away :(

Man, even my sleep cycles have become disturbed as a result of power-anxiety :P

In an average 24 hour period load-shedding in my area (Phase II, DHA) is at the very least 8 hours in the form of load shedding during:

1-3AM (2 hours)

8-11AM (3 hours)

3-6PM (3 hours)

9-11PM (2 hours)

I just _cant_ get any work done, I am waking up grumpy in the mornings and just plain exhausted from the day before...

That’s called a “lot” of load shedding. Load shedding had decreased in my area. No load shedding uptill now…

Mashallah, nazar na lagay! :confused:

Power goes out for 6hrs here in Lahore - most ppl think its 4 or 5 hrs but it also goes out in early morning when most ppl are asleep. I got tired too and finally bought a 5KVA Natural Gas generator. Lets see how it performs.
