Tuesday, 14.10 PM. Nanu?! The storage of purchases the light in the refrigerator goes out all of a sudden. A look in the fuse box: everything o. k. well, here goes.

14.20. The purchases are stored away, the phone still has 35% battery charge. On the doorstep of neighbours meet, to learn, whether next door, everything is dark. Well, after all.

15. On the intersection of the S-Bahn station Grünau to the anarchy raging honking. The kebab man at the Diner to brandish at a loss, the knife, the staff of surrounding shops is perplexed in the doors, a tram in the middle of the way, the majority of the passengers yet, more waiting at the bus stop in sight. It is already set. Googling via mobile phone brings no gain in knowledge.

15.30 PM. Big Hello to the children in the school, where the emergency lighting illuminates the stairs and otherwise, the light of day to help. Battery Pack: 33 Per Cent.

15.55 PM. On the crossing at the station, two policemen regulate the traffic. The excessive demands and Aggression of many motorists is frightening. A civil servant is superseded by a colleague runs screaming to the patrol car: "I'm not' the Kriiiiise!"

16.05 hrs. At the tram stop, a minibus of the LPP comes chugging in front of the Tram, a Unimog with tow-away coupling is positioned. But then he roars – three minutes later, the train departs again in the direction of Köpenick. Apparently, the BVG was able to tap into a separate power access.

16.50 PM. The ground-floor neighbors complain about the darkness and cold heating. The underground garage is open, because the caretaker has to open before the end of the evening by Hand. One would like to know more, but now the phone says: "you are offline".

17.30 PM. The neighborhood has been helping out with candles and milk for a mother of two small boys donated that had reached the power failure just before checkout. Behind some of the Windows, the faint lights glow; otherwise, the neighborhood is falling in unusual darkness, which is scary by the Minute. The phone is offline and now at 30 percent.

18.30 PM. Black is the night, by the cars as there was a blinding floodlight roles. Pedestrians are recognized by their flashlights. In the Aldi scurrying figures with head-lamps back and forth. You still get cooling goods in safety. The door is barricaded with wooden pallets. In Lidl, a colleague has ranked the car cross in front of the open door. The Greeks, always full: everything duster. Even blacker only the hall of the S-Bahn station. DB security people by sending passers-by the way, the driving rolls only at the end of the S-Bahn (of the three), mockingly bright, with no Stops. As once the West metro through the bricked-up East train stations. A bike tour leads into the brilliant light: Altglienicke shines like Las Vegas, if you come from Bohnsdorf. Also, the phone has reception: 3 PM, the power should come back. Still, 26 Percent.

19.30 PM. Candle-Light-Dinner spritzer with half-frozen slices of Bread and Juice. Washing up in lukewarm water; the dishwasher is full. The fridge, unfortunately.

20.30 PM. Night's sleep wash after cat. Key in the front door two Times turned around, after a glance out of the window, has made clear: If you wanted to steal in peace, you should do it here and now. The police will later report that it was increasingly driven to be on Patrol and nothing Special have registered. The fire Department has tweeted: "be careful with candles!", only you can not reach the people on the net-free area. Later in the night is burning in the vicinity of an attic.

01.40 PM. Once you awake, can you take bread for the Morning from the freezer. Frost prevails in the freezer.

06.10 PM. The alarm clock works thanks to battery. Otherwise, candles for light, of cold water for waking up, cold cocoa for Breakfast. The phone still has 21 percent, but no reception. Without a receipt, no idea. The district office has worked through the night and the Info online that our school remains closed.

07.55 PM. The Info reaches us in the form of the headmistress at the fence in front of the school. Too many parents and children are not here. After all, it is now as bright as yesterday.

08.05 PM. Before the first service appointment time, to send the child to the grandmother, also in a cold apartment, the things that endure, and thanks to a lucky chance, accessible by mobile phone is still. The electric ferry on the river Dahme drives even: The ferryman told us he had today changed early in the ship; the other had only 30% battery. "Today I come, tomorrow evening," he says. The phone battery is at 13 percent. A striking through the empty streets rolling VW Bus proves to be a unmarked police car.
