"Thousands are still without electricity after the storm, Alfrida – and for some it starts to become really cold."
"Of Sirpa Seppälä in Riala south of Norrtälje it is only nine degrees indoors."
"– It is quite insufferable, " she says."
"this morning it was only eight degrees indoors," explains Sirpa Seppälä, omvirad in layer upon layer of jackets."
"In the arm-chair beside the sitting the neighbor Conny Wegebrand that downloaded a fotogenkamin from his jaktkoja to set on the floor in the living room – now shows the thermometer just over nine degrees."
"thankfully that you have such nice neighbors," she says with tears in his eyes."
"– In the morning he came also up with some water so that I could take my medications."
"It has now been almost three days since the power disappeared. The food in the refrigerator, and the freezer has been destroyed and because the pump runs on electricity there is no water in either the faucet or the toilet."
"the Cold is one thing, but the worst thing is that the electric company Eon does not provide any information on how long they may have to wait – maybe it takes several weeks before the heat comes back," says Sirpa Seppälä."
"– I have called several times, but I get no answer."
"Conny Wegebrand fill in:"
"– They refer to his homepage, but how are we going to be able to check on it if we do not have any internet?"
"the Trees which have fallen over the power lines along the road is still there, as far as they know, no one had come to look at it."
"Conny Wegebrand, which has a wood-burning stove at home, has comparatively warm inside. But Sirpa Seppälä, which has significantly colder, describes the situation as " excruciating."
"No warm food, she has not eaten since last Wednesday. Sleep, she is fully clothed – tight next to the dog Cindy."
"– It's a little warmer out today, thank goodness for that, but who knows how cold it gets next week, " she says."
