Daily Diary (DD) - Day 168 of 2022


As anticipated, our electricity supply is dwindling by the day....

By midnight this morning, it had been absent since 1934hrs yesterday evening (4 hours and 26 minutes).

As I tried to sleep regardless - at around midnight - I remembered the following before I woke at 0600hrs this morning.

0007hrs: The electricity flickered on for a split second before disappearing again (It has now been gone for 4 hours and 33 minutes at a stretch!)

0011hrs: It flickered for a split second once again.

I do vaguely recall the electricity coming at around 0200hrs (after more than 6 hours). I also remember it coming and going before I woke at 0600hrs.

0604hrs: Electricity returned

0610hrs: Electricity disappeared again.

0632hrs: It returned

0643hrs: It went again

It is now 0718hrs at the time of writing and we are without electricity. Of course this affects our whole way of life, not least the water supply which relies on being pumped in by an electric motor.

0745hrs: I left home and it hadn't returned yet.

1020hrs: I returned home after my 2 hour daily stint at Maqbool Bhat Shaheed Square and the electricity was running.

1101hrs: The electricity departs

1109hrs: It returns

1151hrs: It goes

1156hrs: It returns

1910hrs: It goes (this the longest period of electricity supply received in many a day! 7 hours and 14 minutes uninterrupted)

1913hrs: The electricity returns

1929hrs: It goes again

1938hrs: It returns

2103hrs: It goes

2200hrs: It returns

2353hrs: It leaves us once again.

At midnight, I had to close monitoring for the day, in order to obtain some much needed rest.

Overall, a marked improvement in electricity supply was noticed today. Here's the stats:


- Thus, in 15 hours and 25 minutes of monitoring between (0600hrs to 0745hrs) and (1020hrs to midnight) we received 748 minutes of 925 minutes possible. 

- That is, 12 hours and 28 minutes received out of 15 hours and 25 minutes. 

Percentage of electricity received today: 80.9% (0 low voltage)
Yesterday: 20.1% of which 4% was low voltage
Day Before Yesterday: 51.7% of which 11.5% was low voltage
