We have been experiencing power interruptions in our condo unit since Saturday. The funny thing is only the 5th floor in our building is affected, and this was due to a defective circuit breaker. The worst power interruptions happened last Tuesday; electricity shut down several times from 9pm onwards. Because we didn’t sleep well during the night, we woke up the next day tired and cranky.
We were actually more worried about our appliances, particularly our TV which is very sensitive to power fluctuations, and which will cost an arm and a leg to fix. Even if we have omnidirectional antennas, we decided to totally turn it off when we feel there would be more electrical shutdowns. The defective circuit breaker was finally replaced last Wednesday, and everything is A-ok now. We hope it doesn’t happen again.
