Doug Lerner reports from Tokyo and St. Louis, and points beyond…

Because of the Fukushima nuclear power plant “issues,” the government just announced rolling blackouts across the country are likely to occur going forward in order secure enough energy to deal with problems in the worst hit areas. So now it appears highly likely I will lose power. If you don’t hear from me for a while, that’s all it is.

    Update on the rolling blackouts:I still have power and Internet. But because of the Fukushima reactor problems, starting tomorrow morning at 6:20 am and going until 10:00 pm they are going to start rolling blackouts.They are saying the rolling blackouts aren’t just for tomorrow, but will continue through April! It will be in 7 groups, each blacked out for 3 hour periods from 6:20 am to 10:00 pm.I still don’t know what time block my neighborhood will be in. Still, 3 hours a day isn’t bad. I’ll just schedule my work accordingly.doug

    It looks like except for Arakawa-ku that in order “to protect the operations of the government” the other 23 wards of Tokyo are, for the time being, going to be exempted from the rolling blackouts. Why is Arakawa-ku so dispensable? I’m in Katsushika-ku. We’ll probably be the next thrown under the bus.But in the meantime it looks like the 22 of the 23 wards of Tokyo will be exempted.doug
