The site is serendipitously well sheltered - a flook, not my organisation. I have been watching a stand of forty foot pines bending like Norman archers bows, and listening to rain as though the caravan was being shotblasted from the outside.
I am suffering hardship, but not complaining. The mains electric has gone off here and in my host's farmhouse. With electric hookup what you use is inclusive in the site fee, so heat and lighting are used like confetti at a wedding, but you would be amused to see me scrimping on my use of the precious gas that I have to pay for, and measuring the amount of water by mugsfull as I heat up for a brew. Lighting is supported by my twelve volt battery which normally gets charged by the mains electric, so what I have now is a finite resource related to how long the battery will last, so I am dodging about doing my chores only using a single twelve volt light.
All is calm and blue sky at 8:30 am on Thursday. I'm off to the farm to see if there is any news about the electricity.
9:00 am, back again. The whole of Criccieth is off electric, hopefully to be restored today. I am having signal trouble so it may be a while before this gets posted.
