Avio... what a day!! Anything out of the ordinary does make your husband's anxiety worse. Routine is his friend and that's hard to maintain in tropical storm conditions
I am sure he wanted to "fix" it. You are also thrown into chaos and have his anxiety on top of it to deal with. Add in the fact that it is hot and humid which makes us uncomfortable. Yep, What a day!!! Despite it all, it sounds like you managed to get through the day and on to a cooler better day.
Discomfort makes it more difficult to cope with difficult situations. Situations such as the one yesterday takes a tole on you. When we don't feel well, we don't perform as well. Hot is not feeling well. I makes you lethargic and you don't think as quickly. It takes away your patience. Throw on top of that the anxiety you feel because of the power outage and storm. Yep, you did well
We do control our world by controlling how we react to situations. It is not always easy, especially on those days that everything seems to be going in the wrong direction... but it does work.
As for the hurricanes/tropical storms this season... WOW!! Our coast was slammed my Irene and our mountains were soaked by Lee. I just hope Maria takes that turn to the right and misses our coast. Glad you are safely through this one... and wishing you cooler calm weather for a while
