No Electricity

Posted By :

As i am posting right now, my laptop battery is dying and the UPS i use to keep my connection alive when the electricity cuts off will shut down any second. The generator that rips us off every month to give us backup electricity whenever we don’t have any (which is very often) is not working and EDL’s having a problem as well.

The EDL has a new hotline for complaints but no one is picking up.

Of course they will blame it on the storm tomorrow or not even care. I think i will go buy some candles and bring out the board games from the basement. We might be needing them.

What a storm!!

I woke up at 5 am because of the thunder and lightning! For about an hour straight there was a lightning strike every couple of seconds! It was crazy!
I drove around a bit this morning, the roads are packed! Some roads are flooded completely in the Antelias area.

The worst part for me is that I have a flight to catch at 5PM!! It’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

Here are a couple of pics I took

Israel scores again against Lebanon in the hummus war. An Israeli created an iPhone application called iHummus where the aim of the game is to wipe your hummus plate clean. Time for a Lebanese to create iTabbouleh… [Link]

Thanks Mark!

Speeding is bad …

But cars like the one above are okay to drive on the highway and more importantly on the quickest lane.

To be honest, I was hoping to see more ISF officers on the ground since Ziad Baroud started the speed tickets campaign but i see it is slowly fading away and people are back to speeding on the highways.
