This hasn't happened to me for a very long time. During the early evening, there was a small power glitch, causing all of my PCs to reboot. Then, a few hours later, the power was gone completely.

This outage lasted about 2 hours. It felt very odd - no light, no TV, no Internet. It's amazing how one can get used to such things!

Update: as we later found out, the outage was caused by one of our neighbours in the block next to us. He wanted to build a new garden fence and used metal fence post spikes that are supposed to be hammered into the ground. Somehow he managed to ram one of these right into the power line that supports our block... I guess he can consider himself being lucky to be still alive.
