As I have mentioned, my workplace (a college) has been closed due to Hurricane Sandy and a rather nasty power outage in that area.
A few days ago I received a text message from the college, stating that offices would re-open tomorrow (aka I go in) and classes would resume Wednesday. The Dean of Students said they would get in touch soon about how the missed time would be made up this semester.
Yesterday I received an additional text that power had been restored and that the email server was back up. I must admit it was quite a weird feeling to be glad to get back into my email again — to get back into the routine again. One email was from a student looking to re-book their room reservation for downstairs, as it had been originally scheduled for Monday, October 29.
Another email stated that a group of staff and students from the college are currently down in Tom’s River, NJ helping out today. Donation boxes would be placed across our residence halls to help out with the effort in that town.
And then Wednesday the students return, so I finally get to bring in the Halloween candy I bought about two weeks ago!
