Power Cuts in Poole

The cold has finally come in with snow and icy winds and I'm very glad that I'd finished chopping the majority of the wood in the garden. The logs are heaped in three piles by the house and are already being tossed into our fireplaces.

They came in most useful when a big fire in a junk yard next-door to my work took down the main power cables for Poole and Bournemouth, and we had a fairly long power cut that left us without light or heating for an evening.

We ended up lighting fires and candles, cracking open some nice wine and playing boardgames till the early hours.
