Friday 13th Superstition?

So how was your Friday 13th? Mysterious? Scary? Uneventful? Do you associate any superstition to that date? A date that is supposedly linked to the massacre of the Cathars ... or to the fall of Atlantis ... a day many link to superstition and bad luck ....

Maybe there is something in it. Perhaps it is all just BS ... normally our Friday 13th's have passed without any event or any misfortune.

That was until Friday 13th January 2017. The day we had a power cut from approx 4.10pm AEST to 10.35PM AEST. The hottest day of the year so far at 38 degrees. Yes ... pure coincidence? Or evidence of the bad luck associated with Friday 13th?

Ask our local power providers why they chose the hottest day of the year so far to undertake planned outages that affected around 30,000 homes in Canberra. Why did they plan it for Friday 13th??? Someone in their organisation has a sick sense of humour, I say!!!
