Electrical Weirdness

We seem to be getting some electrical problems here. We've had a whole bundle to power spikes this evening (lights getting dimmed and general electrical weirdness). This has been happening on and off both at work and at home (both in the Finchley, North London area) for the last week or so - although more predominantly this evening.

Anyone else in N.London having similar?

If we're about to have the 'coldest winter on record' I'd feel a lot more happier if I didn't think our power systems on the verge of popping!

I've noticed a couple of occasions when the light has suddenly dimmed for an instant, but haven't noticed anything this evening.

Brownouts are reported from Northolt.

Really weird.

The light in the downstairs corridor kept flashing earlier.

We had a paper through the door a couple of weeks back saying they were going to cut power to mend a major cable. Only they didn't. Then, about a week before that (when we were in the States) there was definitely a power cut because the clocks were all flashing when we got home.

My street was completely blacked-out last night for almost an hour. Maybe it's not just North London...

We were warned we could be experiencing brown-outs this winter.
(smiles grimly)

Nothing from the National grid however.
