After a winter blizzard, loss of power, cold house, craving for warmth my definition of happiness has changed.
I had the most awful experience yesterday January 4th 2014. We had a blizzard, the wind was blowing at 110 K.m/h an hour, heavy snow and to make matters worse we lost our power.
Lucky for me I had my breakfast before the power was turned off by the city. It lasted for over seven hours. The house was cold and there was danger of pipes freezing. I remember sitting in my living room trying to read. My hands were frozen in the house. I put on my gloves,it was difficult to turn the pages.
Today the power was off again for an hour and a half. They’re calling it a rolling blackout. Fortunately the sun is shining,the wind has stopped blowing and there is no snow falling. This to me is Happiness. I feel like singing out loud, Happy Happy Joy Joy. We are warm today.
