Well, tommorow is Halloween. Trick-or-treat!, says the Weather, as he dumps a massive blizzard on all of the Eastern part of the United States of America.
New Jersey is one of the hardest hit states in the snowy disaster, with close to 1 million total out of power across the Tri-State Area, maybe even more at this point in time. I'm included in this Halloween disaster: my house is without power, heat or electricity. We are eating out of a cooler of cold products as well as canned soups and pizza which we get from one of the only resturaunts with power by me.
And how do I type this, you may ask? I sit by an outlet in the nearest Barnes and Noble, and get Internet access while charging my phone and laptop.
This is a nightmare, I'm telling you.
I was terrified to sleep last night because when you come home to a dark cold house after getting something to eat, you get rather paranoid about everything and start feeling like you're in a scene straight out of 30 Days of Night. At least I do but I digress.
Good thing my party was last weekend instead of this weekend! I would have had to cancel it due to the powerlines and trees being down alll around us. And the funny thing? In my neighborhood, it's only our developement which is without power. two over in another phase, it's shining like a Christmas tree and lights are lit up in homes, ready for All Hallow's Eve.
And my dad's birthday was yesterday too as the power went out, so Happy Birthday to him.
Now I wonder if I will have classes tommorow. With the trees and power down and out,, I have no idea if my professor will be able to get to class tommorow to teach. And because of there being no power at my house, I have no way to check my e-mails for an announcement of such. I dont mind not having classes though so whatever.
At this point, now I just want a house that doesn't feel quite like an igloo. I also want commissions but I doubt anyone wants something by a struggling artist and college student who is still looking for a job.
So right now, pray for me: pray that we soon get power (the news networks predict that we might be out for a few days now, at this point), that we dony have any more ridiculous weather, and that we can actually celebrate Halloween tommorow by giving (possible!) trick-or-treaters their seasonal candy bags.
