Russian Village Electric Transformer Went Kaput…

It will be interesting to watch how long it takes to fix the transformer in the village. I have posted about this monstrous looking device in the past. Well last night it started to buzz real loud and then two hours later, kaput, out went the lights…

This morning I got up at 4 am and walked the dog and messed around on the internet and posted a few articles and then we have to cook off all the food we can and save as much perishables that we are able to save. It looks to be a long wait for electricity. We have lots of canned food in the form or fish and chicken, so we will eat. Propane is used for cooking and we have several hand generator type lights for the darkness…

Also as you see, it did not stop me from using the internet and posting several articles…

As I said it will be interesting and the only suffering person will be me. I have to have a fan and since Russians hate fans, they never use one in the first place. I will pay for the usage of a fan and the hot days ahead. I have a plan though and it involves a usb fan (if I can find one up town) and a solar rechargeable light/radio, for it has a usb outlet and may provide me with a little fan… 🙂

Okay, this morning I have to go and get moving on cooking food. Otherwise we will loose too much. I have threatened to get a small generator for such emergencies and never did. That is my fault…

But it is part of village life and I would not trade it for the world right now. Sveta is down here with me and she is a super sport over things like this…

Have a nice day, for we will… 🙂

    I worry about our deteriorating power grids here. Most people would not do very well without electricity – and here, it would be a catastrophe as we get our water from a deep well which needs electricity to get it to our homes. (Sigh). You can put just so much jugs of water by – maybe I should get a 500 gallon tank?

    Yes we have to pump the water to our wells or cistern is a better word, but we have two springs near us and I can get to the bigger villages, with water wells everywhere. It is an issue and Russians live with it all the time. That is what I keep saying about the difference in the mentalities of the people. People in America have become very soft…
