PORT Lincoln and Lower Eyre Peninsula’spower supplies began to come back on about 8.30pm tonight…to sighs of relief all around.

Tea, toast, an electric blanketand a night in front of theTV were priorities for many people, glad the ‘Dark Ages’ seemed to have come to an end, after having had no power since Wednesday evening.

Port Lincoln residents took to the Port Lincoln TimesFacebook page to let us know, with reports power is now back onalong New West Road, at Kirton Point, Lincoln South, the marina, Ravendale, and at Cummins, Tulka, Rustlers Gully, Tumby Bay, Boston,to name a few.

It is understood there is still no power at Ungarra, Little Swamp, Yeelanna, or at Port Neill.

An Ungarra resident reported having spent almost 46 hours in the dark, while it was “going on 56 consecutive hours at Port Neill” with one resident lamenting that postcode “5604 doesn’t exist”.

Another replied that “OMG,you’re still not on, that’s bullsh*t ours went off again briefly then came back on…Lincoln…is still off..it’s like living in the 1800’s”.

Others were not afraid to share a dry or quirky sense of humour, with a Port Lincoln resident waiting for the power to come back on stating that “candles are lit,just like my mixed tape”.

Let’s hope the power comes back on for everyone, and we can return to living in the 21stCentury.
