The electricity just came back on. No power for the second night in a row. According to the people downstairs, there was no power last night because of some accident. Tonight, the electric company cut power to the area I live. I will just be nice and assume they are working on false information.
I wonder what the police station thinks about it, since they had no power either.
It is somewhat ominous that the building next door to the one I live in had a generator running. Knowing how cheap most places are with infrastructure in China, I can only assume the purchase was justified with the electrical power going out often.
