Fried Ants

Might have had something to do with our circuit problem, don't you think...

This was an external power point.. under cover in the carport.. and it had been hidden, unused, behind a big board leaning against the wall above it. As soon as we'd cleared the 'runway', and moved the board, there was our answer. Black soot on the outside of the plate, and scorch marks on the back of the board. It was actually full of an ants nest.. (it all fell out as soon as Marc pulled it apart). Salt air, damp... and finally ... zappo.

So we're back and plugged in and cookin' with gas electricity.

(A bit cheaper than getting the electrician to sort it too... )
