For most of us in this area the outages only lasted for a few hours. Some parts of Vancouver on the other hand have been without power for 3 days already – and some won’t be able to turn on their electric stove till late Wednesday according to the BC Hydro Company. 2000 customers were without power there. The traffic lights didn’t work and absolute chaos resulted. I’m glad that didn’t happen here! Could you imagine being without traffic lights for 3 whole days?
Manitoba Hydro has been ordered to raise the price of electricity by 5 percent! Everybody think again, before you put on that air conditioning before you go to the beach. I know its great to come back and have a place to cool off after a hot day, but this year that could prove to be expensive.
