Emergency regulations

According to the regulations governing the state of emergency in this province, residents are not supposed to be using large appliances or air-conditioners. My fear is that, once the emergency regulations are lifted, everyone will have such a backlog of dirty laundry and dishes to clean that the running of all those washers, dryers and dish washers will bring the power grid crashing down again.

I wonder whether it might not be wise to apply the same rules that Hamilton applies to watering of gardens during the summer months: Odd-numbered addresses do their laundry, &c., on odd-numbered days and even-numbered addresses launder on even-numbered days, at least for a few days. This might ease the burden on the power supplies and the still fragile delivery system.
