    Well I'm not saying that we here in SA are backwards but our entire state is without power lol. Seems that you can take down the entire state with one well placed strike and knock out the entire power infrastructure.


    Lucky I work nights and we have generators so I have power and internet wohoo, however other Adelaidians may not be as lucky.


    Needless to say I hope that all of my brethren stay safe out their on the roads and make it home to their families.

    I heard it was just a typical upstream problem. That Victoria turned your power off. Much like the water from the Murray :p
    Stay safe everyone over that way, it looks pretty damn nasty from what we are seeing.

    It would be nice to be able to blame someone else, but I don't think we can finger the Vics for this!

    Shouldn't that be damn Victorian steel! Lol

    Single point of failure. Seems a little unlikely to happen. Oops.
