Both my gran and I got a letter saying the same thing (pretty much) and since we live relatively close then I though I'd mention it.
My gran, panicking about not getting her tea and lunch etc went out and bought a wee gas cooker thing to heat things up on, and dug out the radio since she wasn't ging to have any TV or anything. UNTIL, I pointed out to her that, like mine, the letter did not say it would be off between 8am and 4pm, but rather it said that it would be off for a 10 minute period between 8am and 4am.
Like I said, please don't take this the wrong way, just thoguht it was worth mentioning.
Thanks Julie, but the letter said that power would be out for the full day which it was. It went off around 8.30am (which was good, because it gave time for a few cups of coffee first), and came back on around 5.30pm.
Good news - the fish were absolutely fine (I think they quite liked the candle-lit room)
Anyway, thanks for the suggestions everyone! :D
