When we were heading out to tea last night I saw some workman fixing power lines at the end of the street. These lines were situated under a huge gum tree and it is truly very little wonder that a large branch fell on them. Bit of a disgrace really. I will be checking Western Power's Customer Charter to see what compensation I am entitled to.
Before going to bed last night I turned on the bedroom light switch. As soon as the power was returned I would know about it. It was returned exactly 39 hours after we lost it. Worthy of some reasonable compensation I would have thought.
