On my nature strip this morning is a little bulldozer. Unfortunately it’s not a late Christmas present. Some guys from the gas company have been digging up various bits of the street all week, including parts of my driveway around the gas meter.
This has meant the gas has been disconnected between 8am and 5pm each day, thus requiring me to have to have my morning shower by 8am — something of a challenge at times. I certainly hope this won’t be the case over the weekend.
And the reason? High-pressure gas upgrade. Woo hoo! What does it mean for me, the humble consumer? I have no idea. Hotter hot water? It’s hot enough. Higher cooker gas flames? They’re high enough.
By the way, I can’t work out how my nature strip remains so lush and green of its own accord, while my lawn is dying from lack of water.
