Firstly, this evening between 8.30 and 9.30 remember to turn off all electric appliances if you dont need them. Remember that TV's, phone chargers and hi-fi's still use a significant amount of power even when put on standby!
And secondly - a local blogger here in Oman has written a great article on recycling paper here in the Sultanate. Go and read all about it here. Maria Ocean is helping to spread the word about a paper recycling scheme, and she has some contact information for anyone with significant amounts of paper waste to call and have their paper picked up.
Finally - it seems the petrol situation is now resolved, Shell trucks appear to be delivering again.
