Even before Hurricane Sandy hit on Wednesday October 24, I was left without my water and energy supply. I sat there night after night in complete darkness and wondered what I was missing on the television or whether or not I was missing something interesting on a radio programme.
While going to work, I finally got to hear some news on the radio and realized that I was not the only one having a major breakdown as a result of the loss of my utilities. Several persons called the radio station complaining about having no light and water.
“We need di light and water now”. “How wi fi cope”. These were some common statements I heard continuously, and I wondered to myself, how did we live without modern conveniences? Why are we so upset about a few days without our utilities?
We have even become so dependent on technology, that being unable to get on our phone because of a dead battery gets us more wired than fallen trees and debris. How did you deal with the loss of your energy and water supply? Go ahead and have your say…
