India is still a Third world country, even though politicians try to convince the world that they are not. The infrastructure is sadly lacking. So, at 2am Monday morning, when the power went off, we were not surprised. But...it didn't come back on...the morning water supply comes between 4am and 9am, but without power, there is no water supply. So, Monday morning came and went, with no clothes washed. No clothes washed on Monday! To wash clothes anyway, I have to have light on and water on at the same time, which doesn't always happen. We have a tank that stores water, which is on the roof, but without a morning water supply, we have to be conservative in our water usage, until the next supply in the evening.
