I think this was the 40th time since 2007 - when I moved into this house (and I'm NOT exaggerating) when my power went down for a few hours.... I feel like I could go crazy on that lady who answers the phone when I call the emergency line for the reparations... The funny thing is, that when I was living in a flat, the poser went down for 2 times in 10 years... Is there something strange going on here? How's this thing going on where you live guys?

It's a haunted house Cosmin, get out!! Better prepare yourself for a fight with ghost...so how about some bench presses?
Seriously, I can't really remember the last power failure, and I've lived in 4 different flats in the last 5 years. It might happen when there's really bad weather (lightning and all that). Though there was a 3-day long power failure in a rural area close to my hometown 4 years ago during Christmas time, cause the snow lying on the power supply lines was too heavy so they broke. 9 months later that region saw a peak in births...no kidding!

I live nearby the two largest power plants in this part of the Balkan , and is still a power failure occurs when the storm starts! They say-- "that's intentionally exclusion - as a precaution"!
