Sunday night power outage explained
It would seem we erred that only Cape St Francis was affected by the power outage on Sunday Evening for parts of St Francis Bay was also dark. It would also seem there was little fellow switching the power off but rater the overhead power cable behif Custom Construction were arcing. The reasons seem uncertain but rather “just one of those things”.
There was also a rather humourous explanation for the ‘other’ quite regular power outages that do put yje lights out in Cape St Francis, always on a Sunday. evening – Guinea Fowl!
It seems their must be a weekly meeting of guinea fowl on a Sunday around power lines behind Rock Lily. Somehow these birds cause the power lines to short out hence the outages. Rumour has it that Mike Kimmings, Rock Lily owner, will be serving a new signature dish “roast Tarentaal” – on Sunday Evening’s in the near future.
