I won’t ignore it. I’ll get the synopsis at the end of the day. But I don’t enjoy watching every second. 

I do agree that it’s all very surreal.

Good morning everyone!

 

Man our country is in for a down fall.

We started with stage 6 of loadshedding. Which means some places are powerless for like 5 hours.

My poor mother is in panic about this.

Morning peeps!

 

@DragonSpirit009 : Oh dear 😧 Is it affecting her?

 

@Evangeline : I dunno what it tastes like. Not trying it XD Solid food availability will vary and depend on what I find in the bear trap I left in the neighbours back garden.

FORTUNE!

*huggles*

Affecting her badly!

The power goes off every time when it's her peak baking time.

It went off at 12am-2:30am and then again 8:00am - 10:30am. And it will go off at 16:00pm -18:30pm again.

Unless it reaches stage 6 loadshedding. Then the times would be longer

We have a schedule now. But the stages change so fast that we can't keep up.

First they say stage 2 then an hour later we are on stage 4, then a few hours later it's stage 2 again. And then out of nowhere we hit stage 6

I get confused about what's happening in my own country. I don't think I could cope with SA too lol.

That sounds even worse thsn us, Spirit. We never getva schedule for the load shedding but at least we know when it goes off it's generally for three hours. Except the one a week ago that was a transmission fault and everyone was out for five hours. And generators failed at Atlantis during a big event there. They were not happy!

Do you know why we are having loadshedding.... Because the coal is wet 😒

Wet... coal? Isn't that dangerous?

 

We loadshed because we don't have enough bunker C fueled generators to produce the amount of electricity needed on our island. We are 21 x 7 miles and have around 400,000 people, and two megahotel complexes.

Yeah part of our electricity is produced by burning coal... or something like that.
Our nuclear power plant is kinda heading backwards so they are trying other stuff while building more power stations. But that is taking like 10 years

@Evangeline - yeah, i don't watch every second either, but i do get emails from a few good places to tell me what's going on.

 

it's weirdly warm today, supposed to be in the 60sF today, which is not normal december weather....

 

edit, 2 hours later.... i got my first ever dragon just before midnight on December 9th, so today is my DC'versary!

We have sun to spare, so why are we not using solar?

(Oil company kickbacks... Rachel Maddow's Blowout is an awesome book!)

Congrats! :D

My first four didn't make it, sadly, as I knew nothing about hatcheries.

Lady Tamath - https://dragcave.net/view/78Fl - was my first survivor. (th at the end thanks to Anne McCaffrey's influence, though I did not stick with that!)

^ or so says my scroll. I think Lady White was my first AP grab, but her laid date is two days later - https://dragcave.net/view/EK5c.

I joined the forum between the two batches.

My hand aches. :(
