Power cuts in Almuñécar when the town is full has become a tradition, it seems. Halloween saw one such blackout.
Most of the town was left in the dark when the street lighting and home lighting went out around 00.40h. But this was not a stunt to make the town a little more Halloween inspiring but the tried-&-trusted power failure.
According to dear, old Endesa, this outage was caused by a failure in a medium-tension, underground line near Urbanización Chinasol, which was righted about three in the morning… when everybody had lost interest and already gone to bed.
The hostelry sector had an occupancy figure of around 80%, thanks to the All Saints Bank Holiday, which left them well chuffed, as you can imagine.
As previously said, a power cut when the town is full is a nigh-on certainty, no matter how many times the Town Hall lodges a complaint before this utility company.
Perhaps ‘useless’ would be more appropriate than ‘utility.’ Yes, there is nothing like the whiff of smouldering sarcasm on the morning breeze, Ladies and Gentlemen.
It was back in 2017 that Almuñécar requested that Endesa carried out a complete check of the municipality’s power network, which they did and then promised to make good the deficiencies little by little… or should we say, bank holiday by bank holiday.
