        For the last ten days, the East Coast has been hit with awful weather.  High winds and LOTS of rain.  In Cleveland it feels like we are living in a Tim Burton movie, very dark.   As a freelance stylist, it is great to set your own hours and rates but the downside is weeks like these.  I had a call to take care of Sean Hannity from FOX National News. The show was going to take place in Warren, Ohio at an outdoor venue.  Just days prior, I received an email that the show was to be cancelled due to Hurricane /Frankinstorm Sandy. Seeing news reports in Cleveland, there was no way a TV show could be filmed outside with the forecast predicted.  Many flights were being cancelled out of New York as well, so staffers at FOX made a good call.

I then had a bride cancel my services for her bridal party and mid-week lost power at the studio where I work, which forced me to reschedule clients.  Now, like many people, I am on an unscheduled vacation with no sun shine.  Extended family and friends are locked in their homes waiting for power/internet or water with no desire for visiting.  You can’t do a beauty spa day with no power.  How do you see the roots on your scalp to apply color on properly?  On a normal day off, one scatters to do laundry or housework but again that isn’t the case for many this week.  What is left?  In nine months, might we see a baby boom?

I take this time to regroup, reorganize, and read.  Forced time off might be a good thing with the holidays closing in on us.  If my calendar has to sit idle a little bit, it is OK.  Everyone is safe here and, by the looks of other cities on the news, Ohio is doing better than most.  I hope people that have lost their family members or homes in the storm find a way to heal.  If you can donate to a charity such as the Red Cross even a little bit can help a family in need.  If you can’t do that right now, keep those affected in your prayers.
