Good morning, friends! Happy Saturday! Guess where I’m blogging from today.
Yep, my apartment with heat, electricity, and the like. Around 6 p.m. last night, power was restored in my neighborhood—woohoo! As I walked down the street, cheering, dancing, and celebrating quickly ensued; after four days sans cable, Internet, and running water, it was truly a cause for celebration. I went to Whole Foods to pick up some produce and almond milk, and on the way back to my apartment, I witnessed Broadway going from a pitch-black street to lighting up like a Christmas tree. Everyone, including me, began cheering.
Before power returned yesterday, I found this Post-It display taking shape outside of Fishs Eddy on Broadway.
What neat act of social activism.
Although my neighborhood is relatively back in business, I realize others aren’t so lucky. With extremely limited access to the news this past week, I’m seeing a lot of the Sandy aftermath for the first time. I’m completely floored; I heard it was bad, I knew it was bad, but seeing the severity of it for myself has put everything into perspective. I plan to resume normal Fitness and Frozen Grapes blogging, but there will definitely be more Sandy-related posts within the next few days.
