snow and fiber

 it's been snowing all day--
unamed seed fiber from sandy
 and this evening, 
as i stepped into the shower
my leg registered shock.
hot water heater is whacked.
after annoyance,
 i am immediately chagrined 
at my arrogance. i have hot running water
most times,
will have again tomorrow or monday.
not so for so many folks in the world.
in this darkest time
i am startled into remembering
all my blessings.
hot water.
and mostly family.
