    Can anybody suggest a good place to go on Sunday to wait this out.
    We were quite lucky a couple of power cuts back we tried to get to Twin lakes but our niece was with us and deemed too young to get in, later we found out there had been covid positive people there so everybody else who had been that day was track traced.
    Exactly how they do that is a bit of a mystery to me as the sign in books at most of the places we go are just an unintelligible mess with things like Bacong or Sibulan as the address and are the phone numbers correct ? :stirring:

    Anyone else remember if we ever had these 'scheduled' brownouts for three straight months? Not even trying to hide it now are they?

    With the current virus situation here, it would be good if the Governor or Mayors placed all resorts off limits on Sunday. There already is one in Dauin that is closed because 2 positives were there last week.

    Three in as many months when the Resorts are in dire straights. I don't believe in that many coincidences. Especially since we are the only ones on the receiving end, no maintenance required on transmission lines between Amlan to the north?

    First time we went to Pamplona area....La Nebbia Cafe (packed out, but there was a charity motorbike ride), then a riverside picnic, followed by a visit to Rabbiton (sigh!). Last time to a resort in Zambuangita, where we were proudly informed on arrival, 'No masks needed here Sir, no virus here'. Whoops!

    They used to be almost weekly.

    I will be going to a pretty nice and quiet place that is somewhere between the beach and Negros Occidental. I hope I have been specific enough so that the entire province can enjoy this great spot with me. :rolleyes:

    I saw you in town recently and put a GPS on your nice shiny new car. I will see where you go during the blackout and let everyone know here. :smile:

    Sh*t, without electricity I can't access DI. :(

    I don't know.
    Twin Lakes is open. It was closed for 14 days after the COVID positives were there.

    I will give you a hint. I'll be at one (or more) of these markers:
