After the rain came the wind. The iron sheeting on the ‘balcony’, where the smokers smoke, was making a fierce noise. Even the front door had to be locked to stop the wind from opening it.
After the wind came the rain with the wind. The electricity went in the early afternoon and did not return until the evening, well after work closed. Most of the afternoon I sat completing the little non-electric-based work I could whilst the office grew darker and darker as the sun went down. By 5:30 pm the candles took full effect.
This was the first black-out for the winter. Most likely it is not the last.
