Telstra’s mobile network went down last week and the world, surprisingly, did not fall into chaos. It didn’t stop Pilbarians from sharing their theories as to what happened. Maybe it’s due to the “heatwave” in Perth!
Erin Kelly Hardy If Telstra is down then we all go nuts and burn things down? Power poles catch on fire? We don’t receive warnings about no fires in the bush? Telstra was actually used as the communication point with Martians and it ended mid-sentence?
Hahaha the people revolt!
Alice Asli Wong Maybe everyone should just have a mobile phone social media break for a week, we don’t need it. You can survive without it. Like seeing people face to face. Hugging. Seeing a real smile, all normal behaviour.
Emma Jane Murphy Perth had some weather they described as a heatwave, aka a normal Pilbara summer. Pilbara residents offered no sympathy to the city slickers. People need to harden up ... went to shops and everyone was complaining about the weather ... if the cold water tap gives you cold water, it’s not bloody hot weather!
Charlotte Parnell Three days in a row of 51 degrees in Nullagine last year! In one part of the mine site it was 63. #hardenupperth.
Great memories of living in the Pilbara and Kimberley in the 80s through to early 90s. Yep it was hot but everyone just got on with life.
Jacqui Worth Lived a year in the Bar and in a camp on the construction of the Ripon Hills Road and 45 is cool compared to what we used to get out there.
Suzanne Jackson We in the Pilbara think it’s much ado about nothing. (It’s) 44.6 at 12.30 here.
