I read somewhere that only the English and the Australians use slang. Slang is not to be confused with regional sayings and pronunciation. Not quite sure how slang is defined.Yes, they don't cope real well with some of our slang though I found the east~enders where more likely to get it.
It's something the government put into the deal when they sold our electricity infrastructure to the highest bidder. There's no compensation if electricity's out for less than 24 hours, but it escalates after that. So they restore power to the biggest patches first. We were a tiny patch, only 30 homes, so they left us til last.Going by our power outages and your compensation rates I would have another 100 chicken coops built by now.

You can make the suggestion here but I'm not sure how customizable it is.
So sorry RC, didn't realize you're part of the 1.4 million without power. I have several co-workers right there with you. Hope they move faster than planned.They are saying August 11 for ‘most people’. It was a pretty destructive storm. Most of the roads near me are still closed and wires are down all over.
Your government did it much better than ours. No compensation here.
