six hour blackout hits northside

It was unusually dark in Northcote (and Thornbury and Preston and some of Brunswick) last night. We had a power blackout AKA #hipstergeddon from 6:30ish to 12:20ish this morning. A fault at the West Melbourne Terminal Station knocked out substations at West Brunswick and Northcote. Cause is still unknown. A good excuse for candles and blankets and wine with pals, but 6 hours is a touch too long – especially when the power company has no idea what actually happened…
