Part of Auckland is not ok. I'm not particularly concerned about that part.

I hear having your house lit up by generator power during an outage makes for good neighbour trolling. People are awesome.

Can't access work VPN or any remote services so wondering if the office will be up and running. Newmarket office... would be sweet to have a day off from this!

No issues on the Shore. Out East is another story though.

The Peoples republic of Mangere were unaffected by this outage.

I have charcoal and a fireplace if there was an outage.

Just go into work for some sweet, sweet power. There's a shower here too I think. Been burning candles and reading The Knowledge, which is fitting.

Hopefully it's up in a day or too, laundry will be an issue soon.

Sunday morning was quite surreal. Normally there's this constant hum from all the light commercial/industry down around Onehunga, sunday it was total absent. Then half of auckland being incredibly polite at lights out intersections, the other half being total arseholes. Realizing I need internet more than coffee...

Actually driving around at even substantial intersections like Mt Eden Rd and Balmoral Rd it was surprisingly courteous. Quicker trip around those areas than usual.

Apparently power is all restored, but the local cafe is still running off a generators, not sure what's up with that. Friend of a friend who worked on the substation (with but not for Vector) says that it wasn't surprising the fault occurred due to the substation construction, but that Vector managed to work some magic by getting things back up as quickly as they did.

See, not everyone is satisfied just sitting at home on their bum.

I'm sure an employment coach will sort them out, lolz.

Yeah, it's a meme. Plenty of people in NZ with nothing to lose, nothing to hope for picking it up.

Ram raiding is a TikTok fad with the juvies. Bollard makers are calling this their Happy Time.
