Yep thanks to Powercor for making my ride home last night a memorable one. Was leaving Uni just on nightfall and noticed the streetlight in the carpark go out just as I was riding off. Not uncommon for these to fail so wasn't worried - till I realised it wasn't the only one. Soon discovered that not only were all the streetlights in the city out - but so too were all the traffic lights (according to the paper all power within a 50km radius of the city went out). Funny thing is though even though the intersections were pitch dark and completely unregulated I actually felt safer than normal, because for once drivers were actually slowing down and looking out for other vehicles (certainly not normal behaviour). Traffic flow was also improved since cars weren't having to wait forever for the lights to cycle through just to make a left hand turn - which significantly reduced the number of cars queued up. Only freaky part is that power returned at the exact moment I walked through my front door.
