Well Monday was not a good day in the Bronte Water Office. We suffered a full day powercut which lasted until 8.00pm. It certainly taught us a how dependent we are on electricity. A day with no telephones, no internet, no server so no computers.
No lighting or heating made for a dull day so the office staff were sent home early and asked to come in at the crack of dawn on Tuesday to catch up with delivery notes. Power was eventually restored and then the messages started to flood in.
It certainly made us think how resourceful everybody is, we’ve had water cooler orders through Email, Text Messages, Twitter, Facebook and even Google Plus.
Social Media, used properly is another string to the bow when the good old telephone lines pack in so dismiss it at your peril.
