Power Outage for a day on Bowen Island

It was windy on Bowen Island during Good Friday (yesterday). Sometime after 1 PM the power went out. It has gradually been returning to various parts of Bowen today (Saturday). On Millers Landing it was restored sometime after 10 AM but was out again for a while in the afternoon.

Late yesterday afternoon, when the house was cold and dark and the wind raged, I walked down to the nearest stony beach. The walk back up, about 100m vertical, was warming, but by then it was raining and I was wet. I used my camping stove to boil some water for tea. Yes, I did it indoors, and yes, I opened a couple of windows.

Today it is a soft April day with lots of sun. The only evidence of yesterday is lots of debris from trees on the roads and a clear snow-line in the mountains at 3,000 feet.
