Blackout 停電

There was a sudden blackout

It was early afternoon and we were about to cook lunch.  I checked on the internet for information and found that about 1000 houses in the area were affected.

It also said that it would be restored in about two hours.

So we decided to eat lunch outside, hoping the cafe we were thinking of had power.  We passed the library and the town office and they had lights. The cafe was open and the tables were nearly filled up because it was the weekend. The owner didn’t know about the blackout and he was thankful it didn’t happen in his area.  It could affect his business.

We had a nice lunch and by the time we came home, the blackout was over.  I don’t know why it happened, it was a warm sunny day.
