How are you getting on? Electric back on yet?
No electric on yet phone comes and goes no internet. The lads turned up yesterday with the view of fetching a big generator but one of the neighbours in a house (just moved in) started moaning at them as some trees were resting on the lines and something wrong with his house supply pulled out of the wall.

The high voltage line is pretty f&&ked and will take weeks to sort out by the look of things. We’ve got electricity to the old folks in the family so jobs a goodn in the most part
