Thank you Batelco for having an independent power supply, and for me to have bought a good UPS for the office, now I can surf while the WHOLE OF BAHRAIN has no power!! It went out about 20 minutes ago (around 9am) all of a sudden, so I wonder who screwed up…
No matter, heads will NOT roll for this one, it’s an all too common a scene in the summer here… And of course no one is to blame for the fiasco they call the Ministry of Power and Water.
The traffic lights are all out, so we expect some gruesome accidents and death on the road before the power comes back on. But because so many people get frustrated, the accidents will continue even after it is established. We’re not the best drivers in the world when there are traffic lights, so just imagine the situation now. Anyway, frustration will rule, traffic signs are going to be completely ignored for a few hours after the power is established, and we will hear of a few more accidents and deaths tomorrow in the local rags.
And of course the traffic dept will not be blamed, and no heads will roll there either.
