Yesterday I woke to power cut at 6 am .Although we were told the day before yesterday that parts of our city would get power cut the next day ,including the street I live in.However I never thought power cut came so early . It totally upset my everyday arrangement .Normally I play the violin and the erhu –a Chinese bowed instrument – for about one and a half hours in the morning and go on the Internet in the afternoon ,besides attending to my 94 year old Mum , reading and helping my wife with some household chores, etc. Now coming across power cut , so much for my going online on afternoon .And what was worse ,outside the rain was driving down hard .In the dim light of wet weather ,what could I do ? reading ? no! It was too dark to do it.Here we hardly have power cut ,so no way would I prepare candles , Family Emergency Light and what not . It seemed that playing the violin and the erhu was the only option I had left ,so I did it nearly whole afternoon . The power didn’t come back on until 8:30 pm.I had had it ,fortunately it was once in a blue moon !
