Lights out for South Island?

The South Island's electricity supply is hanging by a thread this afternoon as a pylon carrying power from the North Island threatens to buckle in the Marlborough Sounds.

All the recent crap weather is certainly having an effect on things.

Have you got a way of cooking dinner if you don't have power? Gas cookers are ideal, but a barbecue will do if you have nothing more efficient. Just don't forget to check that your gas bottle is tested, and not empty!
