As I was walking past the local tube (underground) station the other night, I heard an announcement asking passengers to leave the station because of an emergency situation. I also noticed it was quite dark around the tube station. The moment I had the thought, the lights were back on.
It took about ten minutes to walk home. When I arrived my mother told me there had had been a blackout and she had been stumbling in the dark looking for a candle. She said the lights had only come back on ten minutes ago. I was so glad I missed out on all that excitement.
I walk in light.
