(Lack of electricity) and the joys of living in a religious neighbourhood
Yo, the electrics are on! I’ve got a load of wash going. The four loads behind it will just have to wait. More important is the water starting to heat so I can shower. I haven’t showered since Thursday night so gritty and grungy are serious understatements.
Today turned into a beautiful day and I got a lot done out in the garden. Being out in the garden was a good option since I couldn’t do much inside. We had one hell of a rain. The electricity went off and on repeatedly on Thursday and early Friday. About two hours before Shabbat fell, so too did the electricity and they obviously could not fix it in time.
Gotta love motze shabbat when the electrics people can go back to work in our neighbourhood. Good thing I had lots of Shabbat candles on hand so I could see my way around the apartment.
I’m expecting the water to go off in the building tomorrow. Yesterday I saw two huge pieces of the roof had blown off (we are talking HUGE) and today, while working on the compost piles, I noticed that every time someone on the top floor flushed the toilet (yeah I checked it out and and seriously yuck), or ran any sort of water there was a cascade of water directly down the building onto the ground.
