Life without electricity after hurricane Sandy.....

Its the little things in life that you really miss when the power is out long term.  Being able to brew coffee in the morning or drying your hair.  When was the last time you needed to dry your hair by sitting near the fireplace? Fresh food in the refrigerator is a nicety too.  For the past 3 days we have gone to bed when the sun went down since sitting around in the dark got old real fast.

It really makes you appreciate what life must have been like just a few hundred years ago.  The big difference is that for people hundreds of years ago there was nothing to compare it to.  They lived that way and knew no other way of life. It was normal for them and not a hardship.
  We on ther otherhand know what we have lost when the power goes out. We miss being able to run the dishwasher or turn on the tv.  The power being out has forced us kicking and screaming back to a simpler way of life. Maybe we should take a lesson from this all and learn to not take good things for granted.  Count our blessings, spend more quality time with our families....
