in such situations, dont expect any of the hotline numbers to work, if they have any hotline numbers that is.
most of the time they have no clue as to whats happening.
anyways, when there has been a scheduled power cut, they have informed us with a notice in the building.
DRIVE SAFE,someone is waiting for you at home
experienced the power cut as well, its good I was not in the cafeteria at the 1/F otherwise I have to use the stair to reach the 25th floor!
"I know how and when to say "Please", "Sorry", & "Thank You"
Went to pick up the kids from school yesterday and they were without elctrickery.
Happens all the time during the summer, every summer.
This is a biggie though. Some areas without power from 1.30 pm. Some major turbine malfunction and of course, no info from kahramaa.
There was a story on BBC radio yesterday morning about possible low stocks/shortages. Here's a link:
Apparently, there has been low fuel supplies (refineries closed down) in the US coupled with high demand.
There has been sabotage to a pipeline in Nigeria somewhere I think I heard.
And oil is reaching USD 70 a barrel due to concerns about US/Iran, plus no doubt due to the other factors.
That's what's happening globally at the moment.
My husband called Kahrama, and they actually said they didn't know about any black out, and they wern't responsible. So he say's, well who is? They hung up....LOL
Seriously, I have learnt to laugh at the stupidity, otherwise the anger set's in and it's not worth it!
Yeah..that's real weird..what's happening here. yesterday evening, i asked for Super in Wakhra and he says "No stock"!!!!!
thats why i was confused why still no light in farm house. but then i realized there is no diesel in generator :D
well some thing weird is going on shortage of petrol and diesel,you guys will figure that tomorrow at the stations.
Do companies and villa/apartment complexes have back up generators?
What about losing the a/c when it's so hot? How do you cope?
We don't. We sit and swear at Kahramaa, I do anyways.
at first i was just waiting for my hubby to return from the office to actually take us to a mall or something and in the meantime the kids and i kept drinking juices and flavoured yogurts. thank god they were still cold.unfortunately our compound had no back up generators.
the helplines were useless but what really got to me was when somebody actually picked up and immidiately slammed the phone without even hearing my voice!!!!
