First Electricity Shut-Down and Graduation Dinner Party

In the morning, the electricity supply was stopped from 7 to 9:30 AM as scheduled.  I had serial for breakfast.  I did not take a shower.

I dropped by at a convenience store to see how it was.

All the lights were off.  I saw some people moving inside.  I walked to the entrance, and a girl opened the door.  People were working.

I looked around inside.  Foods were less than usual but sufficient.  I bought some bread.  The register was working using the backup battery.

We had a graduation dinner of our institute from 6 PM.  54 people got together.  Two professors and one student did not show up because of the destruction of their hometowns.

Students gave me a bottle of wine to thank me.

    Welcome, Judie, and thank you for your comment. I hope your son is just fine and enjoying his teaching.
    If you need any information, please let me know. I will try my best to let you know about it.
    In many parts of Japan, people live their usual life. Daily black-out is something new, but acceptable.
    Thinking about the people suffering or still in danger, most of the inconveniences are simply acceptable.
