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!
