One thing that they started doing was rationing power. Since the nuke plants were all shut down and will take a while to bring back up.

"The area has been divided into five groups, each of which will experience power outages for 3 to 6 hours a day on a rotating basis."

"TEPCO, in consultation with rail operators, has decided to transmit enough power to ensure stable train services, even in areas subject to outages"

"The downtown area of Tokyo, however, is being excluded as central government offices and many company headquarters are located there."

You know how important government officials are!

"Confusion is occurring because we're being informed when, in what areas and how long the blackouts will occur only at the last minute"

This is one of the good reasons to have your own source of power. When everyone is worrying about "payback" maybe it's time to factor into that what it's worth to be prepared in an emergency. And to be prepared as a community.

So be ready!

Could you go without grid power for a week if needed?

What would you have to do without?

I would forget about the hot water heater first thing!
