I live in a small rural village which while most of the time is great, as it is quite and picturesque. There is one draw back: the electricity. A lot of the village equipment is old and these days seems to keep failing. It is winter where I am now and it can get down to -20 C sometimes. Two weekends ago we were with electricity for most of Friday and Saturday. This meant the heating system didn't work and we used candles in the evening!
Again only this week, I sat down to do some Linux things and zap! no current. So I had to do some odd jobs around the house instead
But don't feel sorry for me. The view of the snow capped mountains always makes up for it
