Lights flickering here too

My virgin media TV and internet also went dead!

Can anyone explain why this is happening in lots of locations?

Even more odd, the lights are flickering right the way over here, too. I just thought i'd drop that in! :)

Wow, sudden demand for electricity across the region.

No precipitation here for last hour.

Lights flickered twice here too - how strange that it's over such a large area. 

I was thinking that as well?  How can it be over such a massive area ?

Are we not all on separate grids? 

Sometimes when the power goes out people up the road still have power so flickering light over such a large area just seems really odd to me.

 

May be it's aliens! Lol

You get a build up of snow & ice on the Insulators. This creates a small arc or short which results in flickering lights

Yeah, just lost power for a split second here. Still snowing moderately. 1.5cm here, hoping for an inch :)

Temperatures rising here now as the sleet relents.  Partial covering melting.

0.9C (up from 0.6C 30 minutes ago)

Flickering lights up here in Ipswich too.

 

However, the sleet we had earlier is now back to rain. Looks like a bit of a non-event here.

Snow is probably setting on the power grids and causing minor fluctuations, that's probably all it is

Sevenoaks to Halstead took 50 minutes. Star hill road is blocked due to a stuck bus and Polhill is really tricky, probably 5cm up here but very slippery stuff. If this turns to ice tonight, then roads will be impossible
