Load Shedding duration being increased again

hallelujah!

Here is how it's affecting us in Lahore (New Garden Town, near Barkat Market)

6:00 AM - 7:00 AM

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

9:30 PM - 10:00 PM

11:00 PM - still no electricity.

Looks like some monkey at the controls to be honest. Even my 2 hours backup UPS just gave up cos it's not getting enough time to recharge. ******* numpties.

Time to emigrate! :);)

@neo, you are still better off. Here at my area in Karachi, it's like:

10:30 - 12:30

14:30 - 16:30

18:30 - 20:30

00:30 - 02:30

Luckily, power is not out at 00:30 today as it's Sunday!!!

It's not easy to emigrate. Nothing is easy in Pakistan. :(

:) Now is the time

Cut off the power and raise the price of fuel twice in a fortnight. Fit, Geo politicians! :P

Specter>>It's not easy to emigrate>>>

+++++++++++++++++++

there are many ways to emigrate

hmm find yourself a woman who has a foreign passport :) ....

if you work in a i.t. company then their are visas available for specific jobs in eu and usa

i met a guy in dubai while waiting for a flight who was on an i.t visa to the usa>>

get a job in a foreign company who has local presence and get a transfer to another branch of the same company

if you really want something in life>>no force in this life can stop you>> :)

hold your horses even Electricity prices going up is on cards as well. Geo depreciating Dollar

4 x 30 mins here.

In Phase 2 DHA, the schedule has been the following:

Morning: 3 Hours

Afternoon - Evening: 3 Hours

Late Night: 2 Hours

It's been brutal for the past week and a half. Consider there are only 12 hours between 10AM - 10PM, we lose about 8 due to load shedding. It just far too exorbitant to run the generator all the time (5 liters a hour) so we tend to rely on the UPS for the most part.

It's enough to make you go insane; parents are already planning their getaway to the northern hemispheres =)
