365 Days day 7 Helplessness

It was January 4th 2014, The sky was white,heavy snow was falling and the wind was blowing at 110 km/hour. The power went off . The temperature outdoors was  32 degrees below. The house was cold. I was unable to do anything. No power meant no TV ,no food nothing. I sat in the corner of my living room wrapped a blanket around my legs to keep warm. I covered my head with a scarf, I didn’t wear a cap. I thought I’d look like a clown sitting indoors wearing all these clothes. I tried to read,but my hands were so cold , I couldn’t take them out of my heavy blanket.

I never felt so helpless as I felt that day. There was nothing I could do but sit and wait. Finally power was restored after seven and a half hours.

With no heat,no electricity there was nothing I could do but wait!

  1. Dear Chaman,

    I hope things are better now. I can totally understand, it’s interesting to note how sudden changes in our life can make us feel helpless or even handicapped as we sudden can’t function normally any more.

    Much love and light,
