Many areas of Kanto have been facing hours blackout. I saw newspaper telling the night scape of a town where some of areas got turned off the lights and the others didn't. It is a quite unusual scene that I've never seen. Of course we should keep protect the elder people and patients but I anticipate many people in the blackout area feel somewhat absurd of this dairy life which we had have in natural.
By the way, this book I'd forgot about this but recently it showed up on amazon. I found this novel at the GEKO library when I was a student of the university. It is a very nice story in an hour blackout.
