That was in today's newspaper. The head of the union at the power plant says it has gone beyond crisis and is now a catastrophe. You'd think in a country where the sun shines pretty much every day of the year we could switch to solar but no... those in government with their fingers in the oil pot make it impossible.

Politics are fine.

Everyone's entitled to support (or not) whom they wish. (But I have to confess I mistook DC for Dragon Cave at first...)

 

Per the request of @trystan -

edit: found an interesting link, with some fun comments: http://www.tribune242.com/news/2019/aug/09/crisis-catastrophe-maynard-warns-no-end-it-sight-b/

 

and this one (http://www.tribune242.com/news/2019/aug/09/bpl-crisis-what-else-can-we-say/) has an interesting update/forcast (?): 

"All signs, though, indicate that BPL’s generation woes will continue throughout the summer months into the fall and, possibly, winter 2019 until its $95m investment in 132 Mega Watts (MW) of new Warstila turbines comes online."

Hi, Fortune! Are you missing Spirit this week? In my dreams last night, you and I decided not to visit her because South Aftrica was too dangerous.

 

It's only dangerous if you go into the shady parts of South Africa XD

 

Good morning everyone!

Crazy, isn't it?

Those new generators are massive and so far sitting idle.

 

I'll just have to stay out of the shady areas then, Spirit! XD

 

*sets out yoghurt and fruits*

 

Last day before I go properly back to work till late November...

Lagie, if there's new generators, why ARE they sitting idle? politics?

They imported them at the height of the rainy season. Rain and electricity... bad combo. The first two weeks there was so much rain they couldn't even move them from the dock to the  power station (at 2 mph, an 8 - 9 hour endeavour).

 

Well, I went in on Saturday, which was supposed to be ny vacation day, to do that tidying!

hmm, good point, working on a vacation day IS improper! XD
