Tom, you are making a very good point!
With some fear of getting off-topic: Rumour (or was it humour?) has it, that
9 months following a power-cut in New York, there was a significant rise in
the city's birth rate. I have absolutely no idea whether this is in fact
true, but it's a good story...
But, Tom, there is a way out of this fear you have:
Remember to switch off your water-heaters earlier than 7 pm. Showers taken
between 7-10pm tomorrow should probably be taken cold...
Cheers to everyone: Have a nice Blackout whatever you do!
