Grace Stanley (HAS-MA) outside Princeton Public Library.
It is around 9:20 pm, 30 degrees And my fingers are cold. I am still uploading my ppt to google drive and prepare the full draft of my thesis that I have to mail out for editing that night. I have no power, no heat and no internet. So I have to tap into the wifi of the library. I may not have external power post Sandy but I have inexhaustible internal power. No hurricane will stop me from graduating in February.
Now, I stay warm at the shelter and volunteer as well.
After I came home from the shelter last night from volunteering, and fringe benefits of warmth and wi-fi, one volunteer said, “I hope when you reached Lytle St, my street, you’ll see the light. Hallelujah. On the 7th day, there was light. I believe all the wishes and kind offers from schoolmates and friends got entangled with the power restoration efforts.
Now, off to the woods I go to run with my dog. It is warmer to do that with the sun on my face than being inside the house with no heat.
