There have not been many blackout recently. No power plants have become operational again since the quake (that I know of), so they must be managing the power out better and / or people must be doing well with power saving.

The power out a couple of nights ago gave me the opportunity to see what my village was like without the lights. It was a clear sky, with no super-moons around. I got a good gimps of the stars and managed to take a few photos. The most interesting of those are when a bike rider came past and left a gleam of head and tail lights on the picture (30 second exposure). After that the police car came around, lights flashing and I managed to catch that as well.
