After Sandy: Almost Normal Again

by Ken Newquist / November 2, 2012

We're almost back to normal after Hurricane Sandy. We got power back Wednesday night, we got our landline, cable, and Internet late Thursday morning, and today the college where I work got power back after being down for most of this week. Easton, Pa. isn't 100% yet; I have a few friends who still don't have power, but we're getting closer to normalcy.

New Jersey is another matter. While my parents in Mount Olive have power again, there are plenty who don't and likely won't for some time. Our thoughts remain with our friends there, and here's to hoping that they're able to get back on their feet soon.
