Blog Posts - Brownout

All Before Noon

  This morning was an interesting one.  I stayed up late last night (again) so I didn’t even think about getting up until 0845.  I didn’t get up, but I thought about it.  I finally did get up at 0900 because the power went out.  ...

What Cepalco Should Know when a 4-hour Brownout Hits a Hemodialysis Center

Cepalco is back again with a new schedule of rotational brownout in Cagayan de Oro. A rather expected “situation” when you’re living within the city and (okay, chance) acceptable, since anyway, their memo is a big help during the pr...

2014 – The Last 10 Days

  22 Dec Another beginning of a day without internet.  If they don’t have it up by lunch I’m heading back to their office to find out when/if it will ever be up again.  I’m also going to ask them if there is another internet...

Backing Up to Power Back Up

  Let me back up here a little bit.  I have a couple of little stories I’d like to share with you about the day our power came back on.  On the day that we got our power back (15 Dec), after the 10 day outage, I was laying on my bed fanning...

Another Globe Visit

  As you probably know by now we recently had a typhoon and it knocked us out of power for 10 days.  The evening we came up, and the morning after, although we did have power, we did not have internet or phone service, at least not at our house...

Improvised Emergency Oil Candle

Hello dearies!  How's your weekend?  I do hope you're all doing fine.  Typhoon Glenda has now left the Philippines but there is another typhoon, Henry, which thankfully not as strong as Glenda but still we must be prepared.  Last...

Samelco Power or Not

  The end of April/beginning of May has not been a good time for keeping the electricity on around here.  Today is Thursday, 1 May, and so far this week we have had 4 brownouts.  Brownouts, for those that may not know, are what they call black...

Zine #69 – Lita to Tambis

  It’s been a little while since my last post, but things have not exactly been jumping around here. I’ve been staying at home even more than I normally do. If you can remember back to the previous post Zine #68 – BBQ Sauce Wei...

SOCOTECO 2 Implements Seven Hours Daily Rotating Brownout

It’s the Season of Brownouts again! I thought that after the elections and all the bombing chaos and rains and floods in the country, particularly in Mindanao, we would finally be spared from electrical brownouts. But nah, I am so wrong. That feeli...

Zine Entry #16

  According to Samelco it’s not bad enough that they have a another scheduled brownout for 0800 to 5:00pm on Saturday, they had to have an outage on Friday at 0850 for approximately 1 hour.  Of course both of those outages were during the...

My Bad, I Caused the Brown Out

Okay, I confess that it’s possible.  The brown out that we had this past Tuesday morning from 0625 to 0645 was probably my fault.  How could it possibly be my fault, you might be asking yourself?  Well it’s probably because I can’...

Happy Birthday (#55) to Me

  I suppose that I am going to have to change the way I do the posts again.  I am just not coming up with enough information to constantly have posts when I limit myself to only one subject.  I’m going to have to go back to the way I was...
